Land and Ammo’s debut single, “Land & Ammo,” narrates the tale of the United States of America today through music that listeners have never heard of before and yet evokes nostalgia and familiarity at the same time. “This is an anthem to get behind with fellow flag bearers around the campfire, the bar, and the streets,” the duo shared.

Together, Rob Bailey and Jake Hill pave the way for a new era in American folk music through their epic masterpiece, “Land & Ammo.”
“Although we are telling an ominous tale, the song still feels upbeat like a battle cry. It is a song that truly gets in the listener and encourages them to chant along. I think when I picture American folk music, it seems to lack energy – we bring that energy,” Rob Bailey said. “We really spent some time navigating through what we think is to be American without taking it too far down a political path. I think what really separates us from our competition is the fresh look we bring to the genre, and I believe we are making music for everyone. The gang vocals, the acoustic guitar, and our two voices fare extremely well together,” the artist added.
