“Made In America” is a song about a man (Toby’s old man) who is proud to be from his country and has a love for all things that are American Made. A proud purchaser of US-made automobiles and other goods, a veteran of the marines and a tough hardworking man of the sweat and dirt of farmland in the heartland, the man in the song is about true blue American Values of working hard.
Is this a sort of ‘list song’? Yes, it is but that’s OK because it works (they often do, despite some people’s resistance to them). The melody suits Toby Keith and with the strongly constructed lyrics (written by Toby, Bobby Pinson and Gregory Scott Reeves), it’s hard to see where “Made In America” can possibly fail as both a radio single, future video or as a fantastic lead-off of Toby’s upcoming album, likely to be titled – simply a guess here – “Made In America.”
