Americans for Prosperity

by Larry O. Dean



In anticipation of Good Grief, Larry O. Dean's 13th solo album (out September 25th), comes this timely standalone single. “Americans for Prosperity” is narrated from the dual perspectives of the put-upon citizen-worker, trying to keep their head above water and fighting for monetary scraps in the “trickle-dumb economy,” and bosses-followers of the Koch Brothers' “zero sum” ideology. It's perhaps the most directly political statement of this singer-songwriter's storied career.
