All-American Girl is a beautiful song about the "American dream" by Carrie Underwood. Carrie Underwood, is a southern country song-artist, that gained her fame by winning American Idol season 4. I selected this particular song because it talks about the cycle of the american dream. The father in the beginning wanted a son to teach fishing and become a football star. However he had a baby girl and fell in love and sacrificed his baby boy dream. The baby girl ends up falling for the football star in high school, and he ends up sacrificing his football scholarship for the girl. They ended up getting married and he's requesting an "all-american girl" just like his wife. This song connects to American culture because it talks about the American dream of falling in love, starting a family, and raising children to be the superstars they were meant to be, and how the cycle continues for future generations.
