A catchy country tune penned by a pair of U.S. soldiers reminds of us of how incredible America truly is.
Lucien Patten and Lane Goff formed the band Patten and Goff on base at Fort Eustis in Virginia in late August and wrote their first song, “Proud of Who I Am,” shortly thereafter. A video of the song was posted to Facebook by a fellow soldier and we can’t thank that fellow soldier enough!
“I’m just a backwoods country boy, proud of who I am,” the song starts. “Yes sir, I knew exactly what I was doing when I swore to Uncle Sam.”
“If you don’t like the way I’m living, just remember that it’s for you. I’m a redneck camo-wearing son-of-a-gun for the red, white, and blue.”
The song is raw America, the powerful lyrics accompanied by deep rhythmic soulful guitar really gives off the vibe of what America is all about. It doesn’t get any more real than two American soldiers writing, playing and singing a song that depicts their own values as well as the values of the great country we call America!
Share this and spread a little patriotism in lieu of the upcoming President’s Day holiday!
