In the midst of a busy touring season tearing up the road across the U.S., Scooter Brown Band dropped an anthemic single today called “American Son,” featuring Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels. Nashville Country Club debuted the track earlier this week calling it “a gritty unapologetic track that has a rockin’ musical arrangement for the band’s Southern Rock appeal.” Fans can listen to the single on Spotify and Apple Music and purchase it on iTunes or Amazon.
“American Son,” features none other than one of America’s truest sons, Charlie Daniels, a southern rock/country icon and American Patriot that Scooter Brown has looked up to his entire life and sought advice from often in recent years. The Country Music Hall of Famer contributes his gritty southern drawl to the track like only he can, driving it home as a true tribute to the working man.
After a rousing Pledge of Allegiance from Brown, Daniels’ growls,
We come from the farms and ranches // The oil-filled hands the ones who turn the wrenches
We built these bridges and roads // The big rig drivers hauling the loads
The mason, the cop, the coal-miner // The banker, the lawyer, the firefighters
I’m the man in the shadows who carries a gun // I’m the sheepdog, the American Son
Southern-rock revivalists, the Scooter Brown Band, have been on the road for the past few years playing for fans around the country with over 100 shows a year both headlining and opening for iconic acts like the Charlie Daniels Band, Travis Tritt, the Marshall Tucker Band and many more.
