Country star creates song taking aim at kneeling during National Anthem
LONGVIEW, Tx. (WSET) -- A country music star has released a new song taking aim at those who take a knee during the National Anthem.
Neal McCoy debuted the new single, titled “Take a Knee, My A** (I Won’t Take a Knee)” on Facebook last week, while he was performing in Missouri.
McCoy said a friend wrote the song and it hasn't been recorded yet, but he wanted to perform it for the first time to an audience and live on Facebook.
“I’ve been on 15 USO tours,” McCoy says. “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.”
As of Tuesday, McCoy has said the Pledge of Allegiance on social media for 677 consecutive days.
