1.0 out of 5 stars A deeply offensive song - Trace Adkins is way out of line, August 2, 2011
This review is from: More Of Us (MP3 Music)
Trace Adkins has always been a first-rate song stylist, able to project huge emotional power and stylistic range. All of his classiness and talent gets erased, though, by "More Of Us," a bonus track on the "deluxe edition" where he embraces the most corrosive aspects of "tea party" politics, first playing the victim card by whining about the imaginary oppression of "us" true-blue, red-blooded, God-loving, flag-waving Americans and calling for "real Americans" to "push back" against the nasty people who supposedly hate God and need to be reminded that "there's more of us than there are of them."

Now, I'm pretty sure that I have a few political differences with Mr. Adkins and whoever wrote this song, but I gotta say, it really ticks me off to have them talk about me -- and other people -- as though I don't deserve to live in America and that having a different point of view makes me some kind of a traitor. I was born in America, I love this country, I pay my taxes, I go to church and I vote in every election, and I have as much right to my beliefs as anyone else. Talking about "double-checking" who the real Americans are is probably the single most un-American, unpatriotic act that anyone could make, including big Nashville stars. We're all Americans, and we should respect one another -- that's part of loving America.

This kind of tough talk and destructive, violent, let's-have-a-civil-war, chest-thumping might sell a few records, but it isn't going to help solve any problems. Frankly I'm disappointed and embarrassed to hear one of my favorite modern artists sink so low. You should be ashamed, Mr. Adkins. This is truly unworthy of your talent. (Axton)
