Proud to Be an American

By Lee Greenwood

Lee Greenwood knows first hand what it’s like to have loved ones fighting for the freedom of all Americans, as his father served in the Navy and the Merchant Marines in World War II. Still “God Bless the USA” went far beyond what Greenwood expected when he wrote the song in the back of his tour bus in 1983.”God Bless the USA” has since been voted the most recognizable patriotic song in America. ¬†It is the only song to have been in the top five on the country singles charts three times (1991, 2001, and 2003). It was also on the pop charts after 9/11/01. ¬†Clovercroft Publishing
