Brooks & Dunn Cross Party Lines

If like millions of other viewers you watched SENATOR BARACK OBAMA accept the DEMOCRATIC Nomination for President, at INVESCO STADIUM in DENVER last night (08/29), you may have noticed something different at the end of his speech.
Since almost the beginning of his campaign, SENATOR OBAMA had been closing his speeches with the BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN song, “The Rising.” Last night the OBAMA campaign chose to close the evening with the BROOKS & DUNN hit, “Only In America,” the same song that PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH used at last year’s REPUBLICAN CONVENTION.
Talking about the song crossing over from "red" to "blue," KIX BROOKS remarked: "Seems ironic that the same song BUSH used at The REPUBLICAN CONVENTION last election would be used by OBAMA and the DEMOCRATS now. Very flattering to know our song crossed parties and potentially inspires all AMERICANS."
