Cory Branan takes aim at society on new single 'Another Nightmare In America'. The latest track to be released from his forthcoming album Adios, it sees Branan mixing traditional country and rock and roll with the contemporary, even bringing in Dave Hause for additional vocals on this energetic and poignant anthem about ignoring the problems that are right in front of us.
A chorus of "look away, ain't nothing to see here" is as powerful as it is tongue-in-cheek. It's a sentiment that many around the world share and, as usual, Cory Branan has managed to weave that expertly into a song like few others can. Branan's witty and clever Americana songwriting has made him a standout amongst his country peers.
'Another Nightmare In America' is a wolf in sheep's clothing - an attack on a portion of American society that sounds as wholesome as you can get. Setting such a message on a bed of honky-tonk rock and roll gives it a sense of dark comedy about it that just can't be ignored. It's territory that Branan has stepped into before - his 2014 single 'The No-Hit Wonder' being a prime example - albeit to a less serious end, but this works gloriously and I urge you to listen to it below.
