Well. Pretty sure they weren't expecting that. Cute idea using the Starwars "Rebel" symbol on the guitar. Can't use the stars and bars anymore can you?? Heh.
Well, apparently the young lady who introduces him at the beginning of the clip was the star of Rogue One. So it may have been a token of appreciation for her. :)
That's what they want you to think.
I dunno- here are the lyrics for that song:Call To ArmsSturgill SimpsonI done Syria, Afganistan, Iraq and IranNorth Korea tell me where does it endWell the bodies keep piling up with every dayHow many more of em they gonna sendWell they send their sons and daughters off to die for some warTo control the heroineWell son I hope you don’t grow upBelieving that you’ve got to be a puppet to be a manWell they cut off your hair and put a badge on your armStrip you of your identityTell you to keep your mouth shut boy and get in the lineMeet your maker over seasSongwriters: JOHN STURGILL SIMPSON© DOWNTOWN MUSIC PUBLISHING LLCSo maybe he's thinking more rebel against the incoming administration?Curious also the haircut, and all the band in black (he in jacket for that matter). Kinda got all citified modern for the show.
In another one of his songs, about being jobless and poor, he sings:'Well it could be worse, it ain't that bad/Least I ain't sittin' in old Baghdad/In the middle of a hot damn desert/Sittin' in a tank.'...which is indeed unpleasant, especially in the summer.As for which administration he's rebelling against, it could be all of them. But Trump might not be as inclined to foreign wars as even Obama was, although truly we can't be sure either way.
