Kelly Wright, award-winning journalist, is well-known as a powerful and esteemed newsman, along with being an exceptional musician. Today, Wright combines his love for country and music with the release of the inspiring, hopeful, and patriotic song, “America Great Again.” The track is available on all digital platforms.
“First of all, NO! This was not written about or in response to today’s news and the current political climate,” Wright comments. “This song is not about what divides us. It’s about the values and faith that unites us.” Indeed, the song was written several years ago by songwriter Marty Funderburk.
Kelly’s desire is to unite all Americans and he has consistently sought to point the lens to positive news to counteract the negative.
