Aaron Lewis, a pro-America country rock star, released a patriotic anthem over the 4th of July weekend that soared up the iTunes charts, surpassing many mainstream pop and rap artists that typically end up at the top.
Two versions of Lewis’ song “Am I the Only One,” the explicit version and the radio edit, landed at the second and third spots on iTunes’ Top Songs on Saturday, July 3, passing Big Red Machine’s “Renegade” featuring radical left-wing pop artist Taylor Swift.
The patriotic anthem, which Lewis dedicated to “all the patriots,” calls out the radical left and slams those who tore statutes down during the Black Lives Matter riots last year.
“Am I the only one here tonight, shakin’ my head and thinkin’ something ain’t right. Is it just me, am I losing my mind, am I standing on the edge at the end of time?” Lewis, a founding member of the rock band Staind, sings.
“Am I the only one willing to bleed, or take a bullet for being free? Screamin’ what the f*ck at my TV, for tellin’ me, yeah are you tellin’ me that I’m the only one willin’ to fight for my love of the red and white, and the blue, burnin’ on the ground, another statue comin’ down in a town near you. Watching the threads of Old Glory come undone. Am I the only one not brainwashed? Makin’ my way through the land of the lost. Who still gives a shit, and worries ’bout his kids as they try to undo all the things he did?” the lyrics read.
The song continues:
“Am I the only one who can’t take no more?
Screamin’, if you don’t like it there’s the f*ckin’ door
This ain’t the freedom we’ve been fightin’ for
It was somethin’ more, yeah, it was somethin’ more
Am I the only one, willin’ to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin’ on the ground
Another statue comin’ down in a town near you.”
Lewis also called out far-left musician Bruce Springsteen, who was one of many celebrities that threatened to leave the U.S. if Donald Trump was reelected.
“Am I the only one who quits singin’ along, everytime they play a Springsteen song,” Lewis sings.
The fact that Lewis’ song, along with two other patriotic songs from Toby Keith and Coffey Anderson, and a song by pro-America rapper Tom MacDonald, made it on the iTunes top 15 is a good indicator that the conservative counterculture is starting to succeed in the U.S. The American people seem to be fed up with the ridiculous antics of the radical left and the Democrats in general, and they are fighting back by elevating cultural figures who are unapologetically pro-America.
