It is my understanding that Keith was not going to publish this song, only sing it live to the troops, but he had a meeting at the Pentagon and they asked him to publish. I'm so glad he did.
I couldn't remember who asked him to publish the song, or perform it for the troops, but I do know the troops sure did love it. I'm glad he did perform it and record it too. Did you see the video they made when he performed it for the troops? It's a sight to behold. Still gives me goosebumps and tears when I see it.
Title of Toby Keith's song is, "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)"
