My mom told me last night that the hottest song on the Baton Rouge country radio station they listen to is a war-themed ballad called, “Have You Forgotten?” Turns out that song is burning up the country airwaves everywhere. Sample lyric: “I hear people saying we don’t need this war / I say there’s some things worth fighting for / What about our freedom and this piece of ground / We didn’t get to keep ‘em by backing down.”
This is great. Let Sheryl Crow, David Byrne, Russell Simmons and all musical members of the Appeaser-American community stew. Once again, country music gets it right, and provides the soundtrack for Red America.
