    In an interview with LiveDaily, Rodney Atkins went into great detail about his new album, It's America, and its chart-topping title track. The latter was explained like this: "When people say 'love song,' you tend to think of a ballad just about a man and a woman. To me, 'It's America' is a love song about this country in the same way that 'Watching You' was a love song. 'It's America' fits that profile. It's about friends and family and a sense of community."
