Lee Greenwood - USA '84

NR

Celebrate the 40th anniversary of "God Bless the USA" with Grammy Award winner, Lee Greenwood, right here in Belleville as one of the first stops on the tour. "God Bless the USA" went far beyond what Greenwood expected when he wrote it in the back of his tour bus in 1983. 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 and women who have paid the price for the freedoms we all love and enjoy." He has seven #1 songs & 25 charted singles to his credit, choosing songs proved to be a success for Greenwood. His country hits include: "It Turns Me Inside Out", "Ring On Her Finger Time On Her Hands", "She's Lying", "I Don't Mind the Thorns If You're The Rose", "Dixie Road", "Somebody's Gonna Love You", "Going Going Gone", "You Got A Good Love Comin", "Fools Gold", and "Mornin Ride". This will be a legendary show for Belleville.
