Country music star Neal McCoy slammed the NFL in a perfect brand new song he debuted this week, titled, “Take A Knee, My Ass (I Won’t Take A Knee), according to BizPacReview.
McCoy performed the song on Facebook live and it’s already garnered millions of views.
Check it out:
“When I see someone on TV take their stand by bending their knee, whether it be on astro turf or grass,” McCoy sings. “I think of those whose freedom was not free, and I say: ‘Take a knee – my ass!’”
McCoy explained that he’s been on 15 USO tours to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and numerous other countries all over the world.
“So no, this is not a money grab,” he said of the song. “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.”
McCoy didn’t hold back on his thoughts about former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“Whatever [Kaepernick] was trying to do, with civil unrest, maybe African Americans being treated wrong, or not equally, and some of that’s right,” he said.
“Maybe that’s what he was trying to do,” McCoy continued. “But, taking a knee during the National Anthem at a professional NFL game is not the way to do it.”
