James Wesley is back with his new single, “Thank A Farmer.” The track is  powerful tribute to America’s farmers, released just in time for National Agriculture Day, which was March 19. Co-written by Dustin Lynch, Josh Thompson and Steve Bogard, it tells the story of both the struggles and importance of farming as the backbone of America. Having grown up on a dairy farm in Kansas, James can relate.

“This song IS me and where I am from which is ‘The Heartland’ of Southeast Kansas,” he said. “I raised goats, chickens, ducks, pigeons, and we always had a big garden growing up. I can’t tell you how many green beans I picked before and after school growing up!

“Growing up on a small farm taught me to be responsible and gave me a sense of pride, but above all it gave me a great work ethic,” he continued. “I have always had to work for what I got. Growing up in a farming community was everything. A man’s word meant something and a handshake was a deal. If anyone was ever in need you could always count on your neighbor.”

Speaking of farmers, an all-new season of Farm Kings starts on Thursday, April 11 at 9/8C right here on GAC! Check out our Farm Kings section for photos, videos and more from the King family!
