Introduced by Taya Kyle (“American Sniper” Chris Kyle’s widow), Country singer Garth Brooks, who was honored with a milestone award at the 2015 Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night, honored our troops with a patriotic song. You’ll love this!
The Song is called “All American Kid” and it’s about the struggles of enlisting and keeping America safe.
As he played, service members filed through the audience to stand in the aisle and on the stage.
Here are some lyrics:
He stepped off the plane
In his combat boots
He saluted the red, the white and blue
And the whole town cheered
And his mama cried
Another hometown boy
Made it home alive
Got his picture in the paper and the headline read “Welcome Back All-American Kid”
Yeah, this song is for those who never did
Come back all-American kids
This is awesome! God Bless Garth Brooks for bringing attention to the sacrifice so many young men and women endure by fighting in the American military. Thank you all for your service!
