Watch Lee Greenwood perform ‘God Bless the USA’ live on Memorial Day


“God Bless the USA” is one of the best known patriotic tunes of the last 50 years.

And you can watch it performed live by its author — country music star Lee Greenwood — on one of most patriotic days of the year, Memorial Day.

The Grammy Award winner is presenting a virtual concert on his Facebook page — facebook.com/TheLeeGreenwood — at 2 p.m. PST on Monday, May 25. It will also be shown on the Navy Entertainment and Navy Exchange site (https://www.navymwr.org/navy-mwr-at-home/entertainment).

The concert is “dedicated to all who have fought for our freedoms,” according to a news release.

“Every Year I look forward to this weekend honoring the men and women who have given all for our freedom” says Lee Greenwood. “Usually, I’m touring across America celebrating Memorial Day. However because of the pandemic, we are sitting at home to keep everyone safe. So I decided to create a virtual concert as my gift. We need to celebrate America now more than ever. Please join me on Facebook May 25th at 4 p.m. central (2 p.m. PST) for our performance of super hits and our tribute to those who have given us the right to do so.”

Greenwood is expected to perform such hits as “I.O.U.,” “Dixie Road,” “Ring On Her Finger, Time On Her Hands” and, of course, “God Bless the USA.”
