Country Parody Song Skewers NFL: ‘Take a Knee, My A**’

The real McCoy.

Country star Neal McCoy debuted a new song at his show in Branson, Missouri, that pretty much sums up the entirety of Americans opinion on the NFL crybabies sitting out the national anthem: “Take A Knee, My Ass.”

The song, written by a friend of McCoy’s who didn’t give his name for fear of reprisal, features lyrics like, “When I see someone on TV take their stand by bending their knee, whether it be on astroturf or grass. I think of those whose freedom was not free, and I say: 'Take a knee — my ass!'”

McCoy streamed the premiere performance of the song on Facebook Live from the stage:

The country artist, who became popular in the 1990s, has posted to Facebook almost daily a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance for the last two years. In a recent interview, McCoy said the recording and the release of the song is not a “money grab,” but the thoughts of a songwriter who is tired of watching the likes of Colin Kaepernick disrespect our military:

“I’ve been on 15 USO tours. 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.”
