As Americans celebrate Independence Day, Lee Greenwood, America's most recognized patriotic ambassador, shares his appreciation by making several national appearances including Fox & Friends, NBCLX, Ray Stevens CabaRay Nashville airing on PBS, and TBN's Independence Day Weekend Celebration hosted by The Oak Ridge Boys and Governor Mike Huckabee, with Nicole C. Mullen.
"Independence Day is a special day for all Americans," says Greenwood. "It's always an honor to perform 'God Bless The U.S.A.' anywhere that Americans will hear it. The song was written to unite all Americans and bring hope and courage during times of crisis. I have recently rerecorded the song with Home Free and the United States Air Force Band and Singers just in time for this year's July 4th celebration. It's an exciting new take on my legendary song and like you've never heard it before."
