The Red Sox have “Sweet Caroline.” The Chicago Cubs have “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” (Harry Carey version of course). The hippies had Dylan’s “The Times They Are A-Changin.’” But what about the tea party movement? Doesn’t the tea party movement deserve an anthem too? When a small gathering of people become a large gathering of people - and then a movement that changes elections, opinions, behavior - the course of history - it is time that a song recognizes the power and the passion of those involved. Well now, the tea party movement might just have gotten itself an anthem with the new hit single, “I Am America” by former American Idol Season 7 star, singer Krista Branch. I guess you could say that the times they are a-changin’ back.
Krista Branch talks about the song’s inspiration and why she feels so strongly about the Tea Party Movement in this new interview with the Tea Party Report’s William J. Kelly. Includes her music video, “I Am America.”
