I’m not really a country music fan but it does seem to be the best genre to go to if you’re looking for a good Memorial Day song. Add to that, I may not be a country music fan but I do like Trace Adkins because he’s like the perfect Texan, even if he is from Louisiana.
To quote from the video’s description on YouTube: “Arlington” is sung from the viewpoint of a soldier, killed in battle and buried at Arlington National Cemetery. It was inspired by United States Marine Corps Corporal Patrick Nixon, who died in battle in 2003.
Someone needs to make a TV show where Trace Adkins and Sam Elliott ride across America on motorcycles and solve crimes.
