Now this is a song with a message that I can get on board with. I’ve always thought of America as the melting pot. When people starting coming here it was seen as the land of opportunity. Everyone from around the world would come in looking for their chance at freedom.
It’s not a perfect country by any means, but it’s become something of a place where people of all backgrounds and all styles and substances kind of mix together. It’s cool.
That seems to be what this song is about.
All American Mutt – Jamie Kent
When people ask where my family is from I always have said that I’m a bit of a mutt. Over the generations things have just kind of blended together and it’s really impossible to figure out all the fractions of nationalities and things like that.
This is our first introduction to Jamie Kent. I don’t think I’ve covered him on the blog before, but this is a good first impression. The song is kind of funky with a little bit of hippie to it, which I kind of like. It’s definitely got some Americana in it along with some country.
And the message is something I think many people can get on board with. I know people are very proud to be from America. Maybe we don’t agree with everyone on everything, but we’re all here for the right reasons and at this point in our history we’re really all American mutts just like Jamie is singing about in the song.
What do you think of this one?
