Dallas Remington, has released an acousticc version of her current song, “American Soil,” a tune filled with heartfelt lyrics and deep engrained reflection in honor of our country co-written by Dallas Remington and Courtney Bumbacher. The symbolic, patriotic tune reflects honor of and in tribute to the U.S.A. as Americans continue to struggle in the day-to-day conflict of our current issues personally and as a nation. Written three months ago the song has garnered nearly 15k organic streams on Spotify with no editorial playlisting and only one week of promotion, the song is touching listeners hearts. The full studio version of "American Soil" was released September 21and fittingly was performed live during a full band performance at Freedom Jam in Eureka, MO. The acoustic version of "American Soil" is available on all digital streaming and download platforms at americansoilacoustic.
Think Country journalist, Lesley Hastings writes, “The debt of thanks owed to servicemen and women must never be underestimated. Dallas Remington and co-writer Courtney Bumbacher’s lyrics are delivered from Dallas’ heart, her strong vocals soar above the track’s wonderful accompaniment which appropriately includes military drums. As the lyrics state, “freedom ain’t free�” something we must never forget. While this patriotic ssong is an ode to Dallas’ homeland, the important message is far-reaching.”
“One of my favorite things is to hear an artist play a stripped down version of a song just like they wrote it,” expressed Dallas Remington. “Not everyone is able to attend live shows, so we decided to bring the live show to them! I hope everyone enjoys this raw live acoustic recording of “American Soil!”
“...There’s people over there in some foreign land
Praying and doing everything they can
Working 24/7 until they can come home again
But over here it’s a struggle just to make amends
The fighting and dividing is between friends
Can’t even raise your voice to try to defend
Wherever you stand
There’s no other flag I’d pledge allegiance to
Then that ole red white and blue
‘Cause some sacrificed, some even lost it all
Because Freedom ain’t free, we can have it all
It's safe for me to walk out my own door
So I’ll always be loyal
To that American soil
Sometimes I just don’t understand
how people can forget and not give a d**n
About the price that was paid for them to wake up to another day
Ain’t it such a shame �”
When Dallas Remington and Courtney Bumbacher got together to write on July 9th, 2021, it was on their hearts to write a patriotic song. The pair of female songwriters wanted to write a song expressing how thankful they are to the men and women who have dedicated their lives to serve and protect the United States of America. Before the day was over, “American Soil” had been created.
The world seemed to change drastically when less than two months later, thirteen of our young servicemen and women paid the ultimate sacrifice while assisting the citizens of Afghanistan. “It’s safe for me to walk out my own door” has always been Dallas’s favorite line of the song. It broke her heart when these events occurred and when the change of rule in Afghanistan meant it was no longer safe for women to walk outside their home. She says she will never take for granted the freedom and safety she has living here in America.
While preparing to perform for a Veterans' event in St Louis, MO, Dallas began including “American Soil” in her sets. Dallas says she knows in her heart this is a song our country needs to hear. Despite the differences we have here in America, to live and be raised on American Soil is truly a blessing.
