Last month, Madison Rising — billed as “America’s most patriotic rock band” — went viral with their take on the “Star-Spangled Banner” at Daytona. (Their original YouTube video featuring their rendition of the national anthem, from 2012, has garnered nearly 5.3 million views on YouTube.) The band has now moved on to create and perform the theme song for the upcoming new Sportsman Channel series Amazing America with Sarah Palin.
“We are honored to have been asked to write a song for Sportsman Channel and Governor Palin’s new show – Amazing America,” said Madison Rising lead singer Dave Bray, in a release. “We’re all about promoting American culture and showing gratitude for all we have as Americans, and we hope the viewers and listeners will feel a sense of pride come across in our music.”
You can tell from the provided lyrics that the song hits all the patriotic notes one might expect from a series such as this:
We believe in the American way.
And we built this country called the U S A.
And we fly our flag cause we’re proud and free… We’re Americans.
Red wild and blue is our way of life.
And we never back down to a challenge or a fight.
Nature provides and God gives the rights… We’re Americans.
We make up America….this amazing America!
Home of the brave in America. We’re an amazing America!
We fish the waters and we hunt the land.
We forge the steel with our own two hands.
With what we’ve got we do the best we can… We’re Americans.
From the snowy pass to the desert sun.
With the dogs and the horses and the trucks and the guns.
We’re mothers and fathers daughters and sons… We’re Americans.
We make up America. This amazing America!
Home of the brave. In America… We’re an amazing America!
We might be a little crazy and get a little nuts.
But you can’t have the glory if you ain’t got the guts.
Our strength and pride and faith and trust is American.
We like the wildest things that you’ve ever seen.
We make ’em bigger and faster and louder and mean.
Tell me now who wouldn’t want to be an American.
We make up America… This amazing America!
Home of the brave in America… We are an amazing America!
