Kid Rock‘s “Warrior” proves the singer is proudly supporting the military members and is taking a profound stance on politics.
Rock recorded “Warrior,” considering the men and women who selflessly put the lives of others before their own. It is accompanied by a captivating music video to honor those who fight, serve, and protect the country.
The singer opened the song in the most chilling scream you’ll ever hear as he directly addressed listeners when he sang, “So don’t tell me who’s wrong or right when liberty starts slipping away, and if you ain’t gonna fight, get out of the way.”
The rock song is filled with heavy guitar, and drum beats combined with the singer’s raspy and intimidating voice. It went on with, “And they call me warrior. They call me loyalty. And they call me ready to go, believe and help whenever you need me to be. I’m an American warrior.”
The short clip for the song – which was actually for a National Guard advertising campaign – not only portrays military members in heroic encounters and their day-to-day sacrifices, but it also features a special guest appearance, Dale Earnhardt Jr., by NASCAR’s one and only.
