“I’m proud to be an American” are words that still ring, bringing instant association to the song, “God Bless The USA”—the patriotic tribute that’s been called “America’s Second National Anthem.”
Written and recorded by Lee Greenwood, “God Bless the USA” has become a part of America’s musical and cultural history. It has been performed in the White House for every sitting President since its initial release in 1984 and became a rallying force for America in the dark days after 9/11.
In September 2021, Lee Greenwood himself will help oversee the launch release of the “God Bless The USA Bible,” — a limited edition that features the popular New International Version (NIV) translation of the Bible with the additional inclusion of America’s “Founding Documents”—The Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, and Pledge of Allegiance. Additionally, it will include the handwritten lyrics of “God Bless The USA” penned by Greenwood.
The GBUSA Bible release comes at a time when, according to top Christian publishers and online book sellers, Bible sales have remained at a record high over the past year. Large numbers of people are “searching for hope amid the uncertainty of a COVID-19 world,” Fox News observed.
Greenwood noted: “I’m grateful for the impact ‘God Bless The USA,’ has had over the past four decades and hopeful that this new opportunity will bring continued encouragement and hope to Americans everywhere.”
Throughout his expansive career, international country music icon Lee Greenwood has earned multiple CMA and ACM Awards, a Grammy Award for Top Male Vocal Performance on “I.O.U,” in 1985, and a multitude of other prestigious award nominations.
