LEE GREENWOOD HEADED TO NEW YORK CITY
IN TIME FOR FOURTH OF JULY

America’s Music Patriot Will Perform on FOX & Friends
All-American Concert Series on July 3

 

NEW
YORK, NY (June 10, 2015) – Voted the most recognizable patriotic song
in America, his iconic hit “God Bless The U.S.A,” is the only song in
history to top the country singles charts three times after major
national events (1991, 2001, 2003) and the pop chart after 9/11. Not to
mention, the song is so powerful, it is now part of the film for
Homeland Security that is shown when swearing in new citizens to the
United States. The song’s ability to capture the emotions of patriotic
Americans across the country and beyond, is unmatched, and that’s why it
is still as popular today as it was when it was written in 1983. Just
in time for Independence Day, the multi-No. 1 anthem’s songwriter and
hit maker, Lee Greenwood, will visit New York City June 30 through July 3 in support of his Amazon No.1 best-selling children’s book, Proud To Be An American.

The son of a World War II veteran, Greenwood knows firsthand what
it’s like to have loved ones fighting for the freedom of all Americans.
In honor of that, he has penned the new book, Proud To Be An American, in the words of his iconic anthem, “God Bless The U.S.A.,”
with the hope of instilling the same sense of pride and American
patriotism he feels in the hearts of our nation’s youth. Along with the
lyrics and a free download for a never-before-heard rerecord of “God
Bless The U.S.A,” Proud To Be An American features colorful illustrations by Amanda Sekulow
that paint the portrait of scenic farmland and cityscapes throughout
the country, American soldiers, and even Arlington Cemetery.

Released by Clovercroft Publishing, Proud To Be An American is currently available for purchase online at LeeGreenwood.com, Amazon and in various bookstores nationwide including Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, Christian Family Stores and others.

In preparation of the 4th of July holiday, Lee Greenwood can be seen among these media outlets:
