Lee Greenwood is an ICON in country music, with more than 30 albums to his credit. In fact, MCA released an album in 2013 called ICON.
Greenwood’s latest CD is: "I Want to Be in Your World." He wrote three of the seven songs & plays saxophone on the original track, “Here Comes Love There Goes My Heart”.
“God Bless the USA” went far beyond what Greenwood expected when he wrote it in the back of his tour bus in 1983. The song has been in the top five on the country singles charts three times (1991, 2001, and 2003), giving it the distinction the only song in any genre of music to achieve that feat. It was also #1 on the pop charts after 9/11/01. Greenwood says; “USA is the song I always felt the need to write”. “I wanted to have something that would unite Americans from coast to coast and to instill pride back in the United States. The song represents my family, my community and those men & women who have paid the price for the freedoms we all love & enjoy.”
