Trump shouts out Lee Greenwood as his favorite artist for iconic tune, “God Bless the USA”

by Summer Lane

President Trump heralded a music icon this week in an epic shoutout to the artist Lee Greenwood, highlighting the singer’s unforgettable patriotic tune, “God Bless the USA.”

During an exclusive interview with RSBN’s Brian Glenn this week, Trump commented on whether he had a favorite song on his playlist at Mar-a-Lago or at his trademark rally events.

“I have so many, but you know, Lee Greenwood has done such an incredible job with our opening song,” Trump said. “And I will tell you, we love Lee Greenwood.”

Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” has long been used by President Trump as an entrance song at his rallies and events. Greenwood’s song initially released the patriotic tune in 1983, and it has since become a familiar melody for freedom-loving Americans.

In 2017, Greenwood performed the song at President Trump’s inauguration. In 2018, Greenwood welcomed the president at a midterms MAGA rally held in 2018 in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The president still uses the song as his choice of entrance music at his events. The lyrics proudly declare American pride:

“And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free,

And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me,

And I’d gladly stand up next to you, and defend her still today,

‘Cause there ain’t no doubt, I love this land,

God Bless the USA.”

The president joined RSBN this week for a special sit-down interview that touched on the war on Ukraine, rising crime in American cities, the catastrophe of the crisis at the southern border, and the success of his social media platform, Truth Social.

Glenn asked the president a series of fun questions at the close of the interview, ranging from favorite song choice to what person, dead or alive, the president would like to play a round of golf with. President Trump replied, “My father.”
