New “Dear America” Music Video Premieres Today on The Boot
Legendary singer Ray Stevens has a message for America in his latest music video. “Dear America,” premiered exclusively today on The Boot.
“Dear America, I promise you, I’ll teach my children of your freedom and your grace / And of the Founding Fathers’ wisdom in the writings that they made,” Stevens sings to open the ballad. “Dear America, I won’t let them forget the sacrifice that your men and women made / And that our flag still flies from the dying breath they gave.”
“I loved the song, and I immediately wanted to record it,” says Stevens. “And I think the record turned out really well. I think the song is very appropriate for the situation in our country today.”
“Dear America” was penned by Connie Jo Hamrick
, the wife of Stevens’ keyboard player, Jon Hamrick
