A country singer from Erith has won an award for his song inspired by President Donald Trump.

Wayne Jacobs has already won the Uk Country Radio Music Award for the sixth year in a row for his song Stars & Stripes of Freedom which is inspired by the 45th president of the USA.

Jacobs, a civil servant, wrote his award winning song,to pay homage to the patriotism of the USA.

The 55-year-old country singer won the Listeners Club Song award at the Radisson Blu Hotel, East Midland Airport Derby.

Stars and Stripes of Freedom was written after Donald Trump was inaugurated.

Mr Jacobs sent the song to be produced by Tom Manche in Nashville and sent it to President Trump on Twitter when he got it back.

Speaking previously to News Shopper, Wayne said: "I wrote the song about being patriotic, they love the 4th of July and they have all these different names for their flags and I tried to get that into my song-writing.


“I was inspired to write this patriotic country song when Donald Trump became President the song is all about their 4th of July parade the bugle tune Taps and their American flag.”

Mr Jacobs was also a finalist for UK Country Artist Of The Year and UK Male Country Singer Of The Year.
