At 59 years old, Neal McCoy has performed for service members all over the world. Now, he has a message for the man behind the national anthem protests- Colin Kaepernick.

McCoy, who is from Longview, Texas, is a proud American patriot. He has been on 15 USO tours, performing for troops serving in places such as Pakistan, Iraq, and Afghanistan. He says he has great respect for the flag and the men and women who fight for it.

What he doesn’t have respect for is anyone who kneels for the Star-Spangled Banner. In a new song written by a close friend, McCoy makes his feelings known. Aptly titled, “Take A Knee, My Ass (I Wouldn’t Take A Knee),” the song has over 4 million views on social media.

“When I see someone on TV take their stand by bending their knee, whether it be on astro turf or grass,” the lyrics say. “I think of those whose freedom was not free, and I say: ‘Take a knee – my ass!’”

Speaking to reporters about the melody, McCoy said it’s not about money or fame. “No, this is not a money grab,” he said. “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.”

Speaking of the Pledge of Allegiance, McCoy has recited it on his Facebook page for more than 600 consecutive days.

A Better Way

The singer also addressed GQ Magazine choosing Kaepernick as the “Citizen of the Year.” Although he didn’t read the story, McCoy says there is a better way for the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback to voice his grievances.

“Taking a knee during the national anthem at a professional NFL game is not the way to do it,” McCoy said. He also blames NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for not handling the problem. “The commissioner should have said, ‘Look, guys, we can’t do this-we have to honor the flag every time.’”

Give the song a listen and share your thoughts in the comments.

  • Nicholas Sweeten

    Not the biggest fan of country. Can we get some patriotic music that isnt country?

  • margiehartman

    My sentiments exactly. Never show your disrespect by dishonoring the National Anthem nor the Flag. Too much blood has been spilled by too many.wanting to destroy this Country. We need to stick with our old tried and true patriot ways. if you have a beef, ask to speak in front of Congress. I think they will like this and you might accomplish what you want accomplished.
