Yes. It is a song, with Rick Perry lyrics inserted into the 2012 song “Answer to No One,” by Colt Ford and featuring JJ Lawhorn. An ostensibly official song. With a rapper. Talking about how awesome Rick Perry is. It features lines such as “Rick Perry supporter/let’s protect our borders,” and something about how they don’t want the authorities to take their guns.
Surprisingly, it gets less cringe-y with the country parts, but quickly tanks when the rapper comes back into play. (It’s probably because the original song was pretty decent, but lacked all the bad Rick Perry rap lyrics.)
