Lee Greenwood is perhaps best known for his powerful song 'God Bless the USA,' but when he penned the lyrics in the back of his tour bus in 1983, he likely had no idea that they would become a mantra sung at sports events and patriotic celebrations across the nation for decades to come.
We decided to show our support by having parents record their children and send it in. The principal won't let the kindergarteners in Coney Island wave their red, white and blue, so we're waving it for them. Thanks to all the parents who sent us video of their kids.
There are certain country songs that are classics and have been around forever. However, these familiar tunes, surprisingly never went to #1 on the country music charts. Some did even make it into the top 5. CMT put together a list of the Top 10 Classic Country Songs that NEVER made it to #1. Here's a few songs that surprised me with their peak position on the charts.
The principal at a Coney Island, NY elementary school is under fire from both parents and some members of the community after she banned the kids from singing Lee Greenwood’s patriotic anthem ‘God Bless the USA’ at a kindergarten graduation.

Lee Greenwood has always been one to support his country. His 1984 hit, ‘God Bless the U.S.A.’ is still one of the most show-stopping tunes after all this time. Well now he is once again taking a stand for our country with the release of his new book, ‘Does God Still Bless the U.S.A.? A Plea for a Better America.’
Our "Country Classic Double" today features country artist Lee Greenwood, who is celebrating his 68th birthday. While Lee has had numerous country hits, he's best remembered for his patriotic: "God Bless The USA", a song that became an anthem for our country in the days following 9/11.
