Billy Ray Cyrus has a nice habit of telling us what an album is all about through its title. He found himself Home at Last in 2007, went Back to Tennessee in 2009, and now in 2011, he’s declaring I’m American and offering proof via seven new patriotic songs, plus a cover of his early “Some Gave All” with assistance by Darryl Worley, Jamey Johnson, and Craig Morgan. For Cyrus, sounding American means sounding like a ruminative, mumbling Bruce Springsteen, so Billy Ray muscularly strums his guitar while rhapsodizing about the downtrodden working class. It may ape the Boss, but I’m American is relaxed in a way Home at Last never was; Cyrus may be baldly imitating Springsteen, but there’s sincerity here, both in what Billy Ray is singing and how he’s singing about it, which makes this piece of heartland patriotism considerably more engaging than his last few attempts to make country-pop that appeals to everybody.
For those of you who are criticizing this album, from me and my fellow vets......YOUR WELCOME. Its about what the album stands for and obviously you've never had to fight for anything or served a greater purpose than yourself!
I'm glad their are still people who care about our country.
So glad to see a new album by Billy Ray, I have no clue why some of these comments seem to be putting you down, there is nothing wrong with loving our country and loving to Be an American I for one am very proud to be American and will say it to anyone any day if you don't like it than that is your choice. Atleast he is proud of our Vet's, my son is a vet and he just got back from Afgahn, also I have 10+ other family member's that are in or have been in the military, I adore anyone for supporting the Military. Go Billy Ray
