Few artists have ever written a song that has become more a part of America's cultural landscape than Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA." If he'd never written or recorded another hit, Lee would have secured his place in music history with that powerful inspiring ballad. "God Bless the USA" has been voted the most recognizable patriotic song in America, taking the top honor over "God Bless America" and the national anthem, but it is only one of the many hits that have propelled Lee's successful career. With his distinctive voice, insightful songwriting and unparalleled showmanship, he has been captivating audiences for decades.
Along the way, Lee has won numerous accolades including two Male Vocalist of the Year Awards from the Country Music Association (CMA) and the CMA Song of the Year honor in 1985 for "God Bless the USA." His lengthy string of hits includes such classics as "Ring on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands," "It Turns Me Inside Out," "Somebody's Gonna Love You," "I Don't Mind the Thorns (If You're the Rose)" and "Dixie Road."
Never one to rest, Lee continues to write and record with the same passion and integrity that has always fueled his career. "I want my family to see what I do and not just what I did," he says of sharing his passion for music with his wife Kim and their two sons, Dalton and Parker. "I like the artistry of it. I could have been a carpenter or a farmer, but I love the spirit of music."
