‘God Bless the USA’ in the fiber of the country: Lee Greenwood
Award-winning entertainer Lee Greenwood discusses the legacy of his song ‘God Bless the USA’ through the years.
Award-winning entertainer Lee Greenwood joined "Varney & Co." Friday after kicking off Fox News’ All-American Summer Concert series for Memorial Day weekend.
The "God Bless the USA" singer told host Ashley Webster he is excited to be back performing and discussed his national tour and fireworks partnership.
Greenwood also reflected on his hit song's legacy decades later.
"Of course the [country music] fans embraced it," he said. "And then there was the National Guard in Tennessee. I started USO tours. I became the military champion and a hero for them."
Through wars and natural disasters, Greenwood said the song became engrained in the "fiber" of the country.
