So Haggard is not afraid to speak his mind. And he does so again, very frankly, in the song, 'Rebuild America First.'

'That's the News,' his 2003 song commenting on Iraq, pretty much chastised the government and the media for swallowing the administration's spin that the war was over and won. Now he moves on to the matter of the U.S. being in Iraq, period. 'Rebuild America First' is pretty honest and blunt. In part, he sings:

'Yea, men in position but backing away
Freedom is stuck in reverse
Let's get out of Iraq and get back on the track
And let's rebuild America first.'
