John Rich Raisin' McCain Song

Listen Up: Raisin' McCain by John Rich

I've been waiting to hear this! After we checked out the candidates' favorite songs last week, some of you commented on Obama putting a song written for him on his top 10 — and McCain has a tribute song of his own!

Country singer John Rich of the Big & Rich Country band and Nashville Star, debuted "Raisin' McCain" live at an event earlier this month. As a "fight" song, it didn't get to me quite the way this one always does, but pretty cool nonetheless.

Check out the whole song — what do you think?

I think Toby Keith is too far over the top for me, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. I love country music, the old and the new, but I do prefer it without the political statements as I prefer all my music. Oh and I find Brad Paisley's songs to be funny and cute. :)

I live in Texas. I am proud to say George Bush is from Texas. I voted for him as Governor and I voted for him both times for President. I didn't like the Dixie Chicks' comment but I didn't smash my CDs. I like Toby Kieth. My cousin has met him several times and been to his ranch in OK. He is a really nice guy who cares profoundly about this country and our military. Love Trace Adkins and Honky Tonk Badonkadonk. The Big N Rich Song is OK, don't love it but I don't hate it either. Was that everything? **Running & ducking for cover**

Toby Keith is a great artist and I enjoy his music. If I held artist's political persuasions against them, I'd have nothing to watch or listen to. But like any other form of entertainment that offends, if you don't like it turn the channel or flip the switch. Toby Keith's Taliban Song is hilarious. If the "boot up your ass" offends you then I'd sit the Taliban Song out.

Am I the only person who knows the words to Honky Tonk Badonkadonk?

Torg, he did that weird "Chris Gaines" things a few years ago, which didn't make me like him less, it just made me go "What's Garth Brooks doing with eyeliner and an emo haircut?" ;) Still like his music, though. Also, I think I heard a Brad Paisley song about checking someone for ticks. Because nothing gets *me* hot and bothered like the idea of someone making sure that there aren't burrowing insects in my flesh! Oh, wait...on second thought, replace "Brad Paisley" with "James McAvoy" and he might be onto something...

That's a bad offender, too, Citizen! I flip on the country station every few weeks, and I could not believe when I heard that song by Brad Paisley (I think) about being sexy on the internet? It was a funny song, but country music is now just pop or a silly song with a twang. I like Garth Brooks. (I think I do, assuming he hasn't come out with something silly like this I haven't heard yet.)

yy, I completely agree. Not a fan of 'new-school' country, either, torg...I think the newest "country" artist I have is, uh, Carrie Underwood (hey, her songs are catchy!). Everything else is old-school on my iPod ;)

No Honky Tonk Badonkadonk? What's the point of even LIVING then? ;)

Ooh, or Lyle Lovett. And John Prine. I'm not a fan of new-school country. The genre lost me at "Redneck Woman."

toby keith is a joke. he's divisive. and as far as the argument that country music is "more to the point" than other genres... that's so not true. ever listen to hip hop or rap? just because toby keith is not possessed with the gift of metaphor i'm not going to cut him slack for singing crappy new-country with an overzealous patriotic-maniac bent. there's plenty of good country music that came out before 1980 that i'd much rather listen to. like dolly parton, glen campbell, graham parsons, the carter family... the list goes on. sincerely, the wichita line(wo)man

I don't care who Toby Keith votes for he's a joke. After I saw his Ford commercials I thought about writing the company to complain. I have nothing against Big & Rich. I just don't like the song.

Unfortunately, I've gained a whole lot more weight than Kenny, and no longer look like him, other than the balding head. ;)

Nice! Its too bad Kenny wears it to cover his bald head. He should be bald and proud!

:lol: When my wife and I were first married, I was umpiring a baseball game, and she was sitting in the crowd. This teeny bopper was sitting next to her, and she mentioned to my wife: "Dave looks like Kenny Chesney, especially with a cowboy hat. Yeah, he'd be real hot!" This little girl was totally hot for me, and my wife just laughed.

Well he was probably stoned. I think he smokes a lot of pot. Which you would think would make him more agreeable!

Just and FYI but Tody Keith is a lifelong Democrat. AND he likes America... soooooo I think he might be thrown out of the party soon ;)

Why is that silly? People sure are proud of famous people they like being from their state or town. It's just the same concept in reverse.
UnDave35 UnDave35 8 years
Tell me about it. Almost every state has someone they can be embarrased about. IL has several, come to think about it. ;)

I guess as a native Texan I'm a little picky about who gets to be "from" Texas :). It's silly to be embarrassed to be from the same place as another person.
