Neal McCoy takes aim at kneeling during national anthem with new single

If you didn't know how Neal McCoy felt about those who take a knee during the national anthem, you're about to.

The country music star released his new single, "Take a Knee, My A** (I Won't Take a Knee)," during a performance in Branson, Missouri that he broadcast live on Facebook on November 8. 

"I've been on 15 USO tours," McCoy says in the video. "I've entertained our troops in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and all over the world. So, no, this is not a money grab. This is a guy that believes in our country, that does not like people kneeling, not standing with their hands over their hearts, for the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. That's what I'm about."

Gentleman Quarterly magazine recently dubbed former San Francisco 49ers' quarterback Colin Kaepernick 'citizen of the year' for his decision to kneel during the national anthem at NFL games to protest racial injustice and brutality. Many other players in the NFL have followed Kaepernick's lead. 

As of Wednesday, McCoy has said the Pledge of Allegiance on social media 678 consecutive days.
