Blogger, Sabra, makes a great observation:
I just found it interesting that we had two such similar songs this past year.
At its best, country music is the song of the common man, and I think both of these pretty closely track the mood on the street as it were.
Nor is it necessarily a partisan thing; pretty much everyone I know on Facebook is getting more into self-reliance.
Something to think about.
