"This is America" is a song performed by American country western singer Justin Tranchita and written by Steve Messer. Written and released in 2015, the single debuted on the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists chart on November 21, 2015 at number four, and reached number one on that chart the following week. The song rose to prominence after Presidential hopeful Ben Carson used it as his campaign song for his 2016 election bid. Digg.com called the song one of the worst campaign songs in history. Empty Lighthouse magazine and The Guardian newspaper gave more positive reviews to the song. "This is America" was released as a single in November, 2015 and will also be included in Tranchita's freshman country album American Man in 2016. "This is America" returned to the number one spot again in 2016 after spending ten weeks on the Billboard Emerging chart.
