The challenge of releasing a song that connects to one specific demographic is that it must possess something that is strong enough to redeem it so that people outside of the chosen demographic can embrace it as well. Unfortunately for Neal McCoy, this new song that will be included on his upcoming Greatest Hits collection does not rise to the challenge. Instead, it simply sounds like another oft sung about version of the same old “I’m proud to be a redneck” anthem.
In this mid-tempo song, McCoy lists off all the reasons that he is “rednecktified” and proud of it. There are a few amusing lines, but the lyrics and the bland production does not successfully set the song apart from other such anthems.
