Lee Greenwood Celebrates 35th Anniversary Of Signature Hit Song “God Bless The USA”

Lee Greenwood Celebrates 35th Anniversary Of Signature Hit Song “God Bless The USA”

Plus, Greenwood participates in the annual “Salute The Troops” at the Grand Ole Opry and will perform at NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday, May 26

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Two time CMA Male Vocalist Of The Year, and GRAMMY-winning country music artist Lee Greenwood celebrates the 35th anniversary this week of the release of his signature hit song, the patriotic “God Bless The USA.” The song first appeared on his 1984 album, You’ve Got a Good Love Comin, and spent 37 weeks on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, becoming a Top 10 Hit.

“It is with great pride that 35 years ago today I decided to release the song, ‘God Bless the USA.’ I wrote it to show my love for this country,” said Greenwood. “That decision would prove to be the most important career choice of my life. I’m grateful for the many times I’ve been given the chance to inspire Americans through hard times and happy times. I thank my parents for the gift of music; I thank the industry for the belief in my artistic ability; I thank my wife Kim for never doubting me, and I thank God for His grace as He has lifted me up from nothing. There will be other songs that will be added to America’s library of patriotic music. I’m simply amazed that I was able to write one as well.”

“God Bless The USA” had a resurgence soon after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, peaking again on Billboard’s Hot 100 song chart. Soon after, Greenwood performed the song at Game 4 of the World Series in New York City on Oct. 31, 2001, receiving a highly emotional response from the crowd.

The song has been covered numerous times over the years by artists such as Dolly PartonBeyoncéHome Free, a number of American Idol contestants, and more recently by Gyth Rigdon on The Voice.

Greenwood wrote “God Bless the U.S.A.” while riding the back of his tour bus in response to his feelings about the shooting down of Korean Air Lines Flight 007.

“As I stated in my song, ‘God Bless the USA,’ ‘There ain’t no doubt I love this land.’ My love of the land came from being raised on a farm in California and singing for USO shows while I was still in high school,” Greenwood said in a recent statement on the song’s origin. “I’m honored this song is still being shared, and more importantly, being recognized as a song which unites, because that is exactly the reason why I wrote it.

I wanted to write it my whole life. When I got to that point, we were doing 300 days a year on the road, and we were on our fourth or fifth album on MCA. I called my producer, and I said, ‘I have a need to do this.’ I’ve always wanted to write a song about America, and I said, ‘We just need to be more united.’

I’m from California, and I don’t know anybody from Virginia or New York, so when I wrote it — and my producer and I had talked about it — [we] talked about the four cities I wanted to mention, the four corners of the United States. It could have been Seattle or Miami, but we chose New York and LA, and he suggested Detroit and Houston because they both were economically part of the basis of our economy — Motown and the oil industry — so I just poetically wrote that in the bridge.

When I put it on stage … I think it was the fall of ’83, I put it in the middle of the show, just as a brand-new song. Wow, it was like the audience jumped up, and they were applauding … I did it for about two weeks like that, and then I had to put it at the end of the show as an encore; I couldn’t follow it.

It keeps having a different kind of life. I mean, during the Gulf War, it was a song of the war for [U.S. Army] Gen. [Norman] Schwarzkopf. After Hurricane Katrina, it was a song for life and hope, and then after 9/11, it was a song of unity and rebuilding. It just makes me really proud that I’ve done something for the country and for my family. It’s my family’s heritage.

I recorded the American Patriot album [in 1992] — that album was a way to embrace “God Bless the USA” with all other American songs, including “God Bless America,” “America the Beautiful,” the National Anthem … even the “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” The American Patriot album really was the one that solidified “God Bless the USA” in a time capsule, if you will, for all time.”

DON WILLIAMS: MUSIC & MEMORIES OF THE GENTLE GIANT TOURING PRODUCTION SET TO PREMIERE WITH NASHVILLE SYMPHONY AT SCHERMERHORN ON OCTOBER 31 – NOVEMBER 2

DON WILLIAMS: MUSIC & MEMORIES OF THE GENTLE GIANT TOURING PRODUCTION SET TO PREMIERE WITH NASHVILLE SYMPHONY AT SCHERMERHORN ON OCTOBER 31 – NOVEMBER 2

Keith Urban Named Curator Of New Show

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Spanning more than 45 years, the music of Don Williams continues to connect adoring fans around the world, and soon they’ll have a chance to experience those iconic hits in a whole new way. Starting October 31, Don Williams: Music & Memories of The Gentle Giant takes residency at Nashville’s famed Schermerhorn Symphony Center for three nights of reflection of the Country Music Hall of Fame member’s music, accompanied by the Nashville Symphony, with Keith Urban serving as the show’s curator.
 
“Don Williams and his music are strong threads in the tapestry of my life,” said Urban. “I jumped at the chance to play even a small role in this incredible concert experience. There is no better way to celebrate him and his legacy than reliving those musical moments and I’m honored to be part of continuing to share his story and music.”

Williams – (1939-2017) – was one of the earliest Country artists to take their music globally. In addition to his North American success, The Gentle Giant toured extensively throughout Europe and Africa and his legendary songs reached all corners of the globe and continue to capture the hearts of fans worldwide. His catalog is among the most streamed music from his era.

“This style of show has never been done before in Country music and it’s very fitting that we present Don and his music to the fans in this way,” says Robert Pratt, Don’s long-time manager. “Don was a very quiet and private person who loved performing for his legion of fans. I am especially happy to bring his music back to the fans and premiere this new show in Nashville with the symphony and then take it on the road throughout 2020.”

The concert is a musical journey through historical video performance of Don Williams, plus special guest singers live onstage, all accompanied by Don’s touring band and the Nashville Symphony.

During his career, Williams scored 17 No. 1 hits including “I Believe In You”, “It Must Be Love”, “Lord I Hope This Day Is Good” and “Tulsa Time.” He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010, and was best known for his straightforward, yet smooth bass-baritone voice and soft tones which earned him the nickname The Gentle Giant of Country Music.

Exclusive pre-sale tickets for these shows go on sale via Ticketmaster with code GENTLEGIANT on Monday, May 27 for a limited time of 80 hours in celebration of Don’s 80th birthday. Tickets are also currently available with Nashville Symphony season ticket packages at NashvilleSymphony.org, 615.687.6400 or the Schermerhorn Symphony Center box office. Any remaining tickets will go on sale July 19, 2019 at 10 am.

About Don Williams:
Williams first came to prominence in the 1960s as a member of the folk group The Pozo-Seco Singers. The trio recorded several hit records, with the biggest being “Time.” By 1971, Williams had gone solo, and had signed a publishing deal with Jack Clement. The Hall of Fame producer was so taken with Don’s style that he offered him a recording contract with his JMI Records in 1972. Early hits included “Atta Way To Go” and “Come Early Morning,” as well as “We Should Be Together,” which became his first Billboard top ten hit from 1974. He then moved to ABC / Dot (Later MCA), where the hits increased. Tracks such as “Rake and Ramblin’ Man,” “Tulsa Time,” and “Nobody But You” helped to make him one of the most-played artists on Country Radio in the 1970s and 1980s. He took home the Male Vocalist of the Year trophy from the Country Music Association in 1978, and notched his biggest hit in 1981 with “I Believe In You,” which also crossed over to the top-30 on the Hot 100.

Subsequent moves to Capitol Nashville and RCA kept Williams on the charts into the 1990s, as he continued to play for huge crowds on the road. His success in the United States is well-documented, but the music of Don Williams has made him an international star – with followings in such places as Africa, England and New Zealand. He has placed 52 singles in the top-40 on the Country charts in the United States, with 17 going all the way to the top spot. Williams was a member of The Country Music Hall of Fame and The Grand Ole Opry. Williams appeared in the films W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings and Smokey & The Bandit II with Burt Reynolds.
