This year marks the 40th anniversary of one of the most iconic patriotic songs, “God Bless The USA.”

Country Singer-Songwriter Lee Greenwood wrote the song back in 1983 and it was awarded “Song of the Year” at the 1985 Country Music Awards. He joins Janice on the podcast to discuss his life, career, and songwriting process.

Lee details what inspired him to write the iconic song, explaining what it meant then, and now forty years later. He later teases a very special project that will honor our nation’s heroes for Veteran’s Day.
