Larry Gatlin, Billy Dean Take on Terrorists With New Song [WATCH]
Larry Gatlin and Billy Dean have strong feelings about the terrorists who have been all over the news because of the recent beheadings of both Americans and those of other nationalities. In response, the two singers wrote a song, 'An American With a Remington,' which they say was complete in a matter of hours.
"It really p---ed us off," Gatlin recalls. "Like Johnny Cash told me one time, he said, 'Pilgrim, when something makes you mad enough, you're d--n sure to write a song about it.' So me and Billy wrote one.
"Folks are stirred up about this stuff, and they should be," he continues. "These gutless, worthless terrorist cowards are attacking innocent people, and we as a nation won't stand for it. We're p---ed off, and we hope this song delivers a message to the bad guys."
The men debuted the song on Facebook, reaching millions of views in a short amount of time.
"The feedback we have gotten from this song has been overwhelming, and with good reason," Dean adds. "It has reached over five million people on Facebook in just a few hours, which tells us something about the temperature of the situation. People are mad as hell, and there's an army of Americans who know how to use a gun and who respect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
Gatlin and Dean plan on releasing a studio version of 'An American With a Remington' in the near future.
