Dollar General Blues is a story of a lack of economic prosperity in America. It attempts to tell the true story of America, in contract to Trump’s boasts of Making America Great Again. It’s sombre and compelling with simple guitar and gruff vocals that tell the blues so well.

With acclaims in the American folk scene and a unique, lyrical voice, John John Brown is quickly growing to be an important proponent of the modern American music culture. Check out Dollar General Blues below.
