As we celebrate Memorial Day and remember all of those who willingly gave of their freedom so we could have ours, it brings to mind a few country songs that reflect our American pride. Country music and patriotism have always gone hand in hand. Whether we are in good times of peace, or hard times or war, country music anthems have transcended through decades, proclaiming the pride of our country to their fans.

Here are the Top 5 favorite country music tributes to the U.S.A. from Country Music Pride:

1. God Bless The USA-Lee Greenwood, 1992

And I gladly stand up next to you / And defend her still today / ‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land / God bless the U.S.A…

2. Only In America-Brooks And Dunn, 2001

Only in America / Where we dream in red, white and blue / Only in America / Where we dream as big as we want to…

3. In America-Charlie Daniels Band, 1980

We’ll all stick together, and you can take that to the bank / That’s the cowboys and the hippies, Rebels and the Yanks…

4. Courtesy Of The Red White And Blue-Toby Keith, 2002

Man, it’s gonna be hell/ When you hear Mother Freedom/ Start ringin’ her bell/ And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you/ Brought to you Courtesy of the Red White and Blue…

5. Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning-Alan Jackson, 2002

I’m just a singer of simple songs/ I’m not a real political man…But I know Jesus and I talk to God/ And I remember this from when I was young/ Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us/ And the greatest is love…


And one more because I love this song so much and there are too many great patriotic country songs to pick just a handful. The list could go on and on…that’s what I love about country music, the heart, soul and American pride of it all!

*Independence Day-Martina McBride, 1993

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing / Let the whole world know that today / Is a day of reckoning. / Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong…

Happy Memorial Day! Enjoy your day with family and friends and don’t forget to thank a veteran and those in active duty today!
