Marine vet Jimmy Rose sang an original song on America’s Got Talent called "Coal Keeps the Lights On". He says the song about coal is in support of his hometown.
There is a reason, however, that coal is under pressure in the United States. Environmentalists including Obama have undergone a war on coal. Not sure if he realized he was criticizing Obama’s war on coal with his message. Even if he did, he may not want to be defined in that way.
