STORY: Bruce Springsteen Explains Why He Supports Obama

Springsteen appeared at Obama rallies in Parma, Ohio, with Bill Clinton and in Ames, Iowa, last week, performing hit such as "Promised Land" as well as a new campaign song called "Forward, and Away We Go."

Springsteen, whose music has long explored the travails of blue-collar America, campaigned extensively for Obama in 2008 but these were his first appearances for the president on the 2012 campaign trail. 

In 2009, he opened the Obama inaugural concert in Washington with his song "The Rising" and performed Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land" with Pete Seeger.
