What would impress your friends more than an LP autographed by all four of the Oak Ridge Boys? How taking a photograph of William Lee Golden as he signed this copy of American Made and keeping it inside the jacket.
Folks are more likely to remember this album’s title song as it was re-worked into a Miller Beer commercial shortly after the album’s release. This is hardly a scandal on the scale of Ronald Reagan’s attempted appropriation of “Born in the U.S.A.,” but it was probably a big deal in Oak Ridge circles. The band did not participate in the music for the commercial, and reportedly refused to perform “American Made” so long as the commercial ran on television.
