Country music artists hold great pride in the fact that they record real songs about real life people. These songs aren't necessarily about one individual, but rather, a whole group that can relate to the message.
One such song is Trace Adkins' "American Man," which is a gritty tribute to the American working class. The song serves as the title track of Adkins' second Greatest Hits album, which was released in 2007. Written by Tony Martin, Wendell Mobley, and Neil Thrasher, "American Man" was one of three previously unreleased songs to appear on the album.
The song opens up by describing a hard workin' man, who busts his back every day for the sake of his wife and kids. In the chorus, Adkins gives all blue collar Americans a well-deserved round of applause, singing:
"So let's all raise a glass to the guy who never asked any praise for a job well done. All the blood, sweat and tears, standing tall, no fear. He's the backbone of this land."
You can tell from Adkins' passionate delivery of the song just how much he respects the everyday people who help move our country forward. Tune in below to hear his compelling message through the audio clip of "American Man."
Adkins may be a country music superstar, but he also enjoys getting his hands dirty and doing some manual labor. You can see that in the music video for his newest single, "Watered Down."
The video shows Adkins completing several chores on his farm located outside of Nashville. The simple, down-to-earth nature of the video connects well with the message of the song, which is all about slowing things down and living a little less on the wild side.
