Country music star Neal McCoy takes a stand against NFL kneelers
Neal McCoy debuted his latest song, ‘Take A Knee, My Ass’ this week, aiming it directly at athletes who ‘take a knee’ during the National Anthem.
On Monday, an East Texas country music star released a new song taking aim at those who take a knee during the National Anthem.
Neal McCoy debuted his new single, "Take a Knee, My A** (I Won’t Take a Knee)" on Facebook Live.
"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." (KETK)
The song talks about the men and women in our military who are fighting or fought for our freedoms and the need to stand for the flag.
McCoy confirmed with CBS19 that it is in direct relation to Colin Kaepernick’s protest. McCoy says he understands Kaepernick’s cause, but wants him and other athletes to find another way to protest. (CBS 19)
