Dog the Bounty Hunter couldn’t have picked a better theme song for his new show than a Charlie Daniels Band classic. The TV bounty hunter revealed “Simple Man” will be the theme song for his show “Dog Unleashed.”

On Instagram, Dog or Duane Chapman wrote, “Our new theme song says it all it’s called a simple man by the Charlie Daniels band please tell us if you like it.”

Dog the Bounty Hunter Promises to Be Unleashed

“Simple Man” perfectly sets the mood for meaner and more ferocious Dog the Bounty Hunter. Lyrics include “I ain’t nothin’ but a simple man/They call me a redneck I reckon that I am/ But there’s things going on/That make me mad down to the core.

This time the bounty hunter won’t be going after runners that skipped bail or committed petty theft. He’s coming after the rapists, murderers, and child molesters of the world. Families of victims hired Chapman to hunt down and bring the perpetrators to justice.

In the new series, Chapman promises to take no prisoners, besides – well the prisoners.

“The world is getting more dangerous, not only because of COVID. But with a justice system that is bowing down to these people,” Chapman told PopCulture. “I had been leashed up and told, ‘You can’t do that.’ And, ‘You can’t have that made public,’ so I’m hoping this is my final series. I tell [the film team] just shut up and roll…We’re gonna start some controversy, and I think I’m the president of that. It’s the next chapter of my life. And I’m going out with a bang.”

Chapman will have help along the way. Bounty hunting has always been a family affair for Chapman. Recent fiancé Francie Fran will join Chapman out on the hunt along with other family members. Previously, Chapman’s late wife Beth was his partner in fighting crime. But Beth passed away after a battle with cancer in June 2019.

‘Simple Man’ Was a Hit for the Charlie Daniels Band

The Charlie Daniels Band recorded and released “Simple Man” in 1989. When it debuted, the song was a popular hit for the band and made No. 12 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

The song supported people taking the law into their own hands. Through the lyrics, the song explored frustrations the narrator has with the criminal justice system.
