Last year there were some really strong storms that ripped through Illinois.
It seems like this has been happening quite a bit the last few years. But I guess these things are cyclical. There is always something going on around the world and in the US, but when it hits near your home you really feel the effects.
That’s when artists can use music to bring people together to tap into the human spirit that keeps everybody moving forward.
(Our Anthem) American Made – Jacob Colgan
The song is about those storms last year that caused so much damage. People lose loved ones. They lost homes and property. It has to be really damaging to have things taken away from you in an instant.
But this song puts a different spin on the situation.
It focuses on the resiliency of people and specifically American people. No matter what happens it always seems like the people are able to move on and focus on the future. They build the houses back up even strong.
You can’t replace loved ones you’ve lost, but you can remember them and move forward and love the ones you still have even more today and tomorrow.
It’s a strong message and it comes across well in this song.
