Program Notes

God Bless the USA won the Country Music Association’s Song of the Year honor in 1985, but it earned legendary acclaim for composer lyricist Lee Greenwood when it became permanently linked with the 1991 Persian Gulf War. Ten years later, Lee Greenwood sang the song to thank rescue workers at the World Trade Center.
