First off, for readers here in the UK, what is NRA? NRA is the abbreviation for the National Rifle Association in the States and it’s not a bunch of guys who get together at weekends to blast way with their guns. No, the NRA’s ideals include support for the US military, love of family and an appreciation for outdoor activities.
This album is a coming together of artists including Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Justin Moore, Rodney Atkins and Montgomery Gentry whom support these ideals. Each singer has contributed one of their songs that follows the NRA’s core values, which includes respect, honour and freedom.
Most of the songs on the album are familiar, having been hits in their own right. In addition there are tracks from Trace Adkins – “More of Us”, Charlie Daniels – “In America”, Rhett Akins and Dallas Davidson, “Opening Day” and the title track, Justin Moore, “This is NRA Country”.
In all, a great collective, and despite the fact that the NRA won’t mean us much to listeners in the UK as it does to our friends in the US, musically it’s still a CD well worth having.
