Count country singer Neal McCoy among those fed up with the NFL protests. He responded with an epic single, “Take a Knee, My Ass.”
It’s no secret that McCoy is taking a job at former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the many others who are protesting the national anthem. His new single debuted last week.
It was performed October 8th and shared on Facebook Live and has since gone viral.
Country singer Neal McCoy’s single “Take a Knee, My Ass”
Per Washington Examiner:
“When I see someone on TV take their stand by bending their knee, whether it be on astro turf or grass,” the lyrics say. “I think of those whose freedom was not free, and I say: ‘Take a knee – my ass!’”
The song, which McCoy notes was written by a friend of his, cites the armed forces as a reason why he proudly stands for the national anthem.
“I’ve been on 15 USO tours,” McCoy explained to reporters. “I’ve entertained our troops in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and all over the world.”
“So, no, this is not a money grab. This is a guy that believes in our country, that does not like people kneeling, not standing with their hands over their hearts, for the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. That’s what I’m about.”
McCoy is also well-known for posting hundreds of videos of himself reciting the Pledge of Allegiance on social media.
Good to see a man stand up for America. It’s great he’s entertained United States troops all over the world. He’s not just doing it for money, this is what he truly believes in.
