Memorial Day Tunes: Top 5 Patriotic Songs

I want to start by wishing everyone a happy Memorial Day, especially those who have fought and served our contry. Without you this country would not be what it is today. So for those that fight… and more importantly, those that have fallen… THANK YOU.

In scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed today I couldn’t help but notice all of the patriotic posts… videos… songs…etc. That got me thinking about the songs that make me feel a sense of patriotism. So, I put together a list of my top 5 patriotic songs. These are just the 5 songs i chose… for my own personal reasons. You are all welcome to your own lists… and I’d love to hear them.

5. Sam Cooke- A Change is Gonna Come

4. Zac Brown Band- Free

3. Bruce Springsteen- Born in the USA

2. Lee Greenwood- God Bless The USA

1. Star Spangled Banner

There you have it… now it’s your turn, weigh in and let me know your top 5. God Bless the USA!

  1. Those are all good choices. One of my favorites is “Some Gave All” by Billy Ray Cyrus. It tells a great story. And it’s about a Gulf War veteran. My dad served in the Gulf War (as well as serving a peacekeeping mission in Bosnia & serving in Phase 2 of Operation Iraqi Freedom).

    “God Bless America” is also a great choice. And Dolly Parton has a great song called “Welcome Home”. And “The 8th of November” by Big & Rich. “Letters From Home” by John Michael Montgomery & “If You’re Reading This” by Tim McGraw. P.S.-Nikki helped me with some of this list.
