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
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.

His discography includes twenty-two studio albums, seven compilation albums, seven No. 1 hits, and thirty-eight singles including songs like “Ring On Her Finger," "Time On Her Hands,” “Dixie Road,” and “Somebody’s Gonna Love You,” among others. His stand-out hit "God Bless The USA," has been in the top five on the country singles charts three times (1991, 2001 and 2003), giving it the distinction of being the only song in any genre of music to achieve that feat. It was also No. 1 on the pop charts after 9/11.

He is the National Ambassador for HelpingaHero.org, a non-profit, non-partisan organization providing support for military personnel, severely injured in the war on terror.
In partnership with HelpingaHero.org, Greenwood helps to provide specially adapted homes for qualifying service members and engages in communities to provide services and resources for our wounded heroes and their families. In November 2008, President George W. Bush appointed Greenwood to a six-year term as a council member on the National Endowment for the Arts. The California native wrote his second book in 2012, a collection of inspirational essays titled Does God Still Bless the USA; A Plea for a Better America (Tate Publishing). His latest projects include a brand-new fully illustrated children's book, Proud To Be An American (Clovercroft Publishing), in stores Memorial Day Weekend, as well as a seven song EP, I Want to Be In Your World, featuring more songs penned by Greenwood and him on saxophone.
