Brooks & Dunn Comment on Obama's Use Of "Only In America"

By |

If it felt familiar when Brooks & Dunn's "Only In America" played after Barack Obama's acceptance speech last night, there was good reason: President George W. Bush used the same song four years ago when he was rallying against Democratic candidate John Kerry. Brooks & Dunn were big supporters of Bush, even playing W's inauguration party back in 2001. So how does Kix Brooks feel about Obama's use of the track? He wasn't angry at Obama for using the song, a la Jackson Browne with John McCain. Instead Brooks said, "Seems ironic that the same song Bush used at the Republican Convention last election would be used by Obama and the Democrats now. Very flattering to know our song crossed parties and potentially inspires all Americans."
