Country Songs Playlist to Listen To For the Fourth of July

0  comments

The fourth of July is an annual celebration of American independence from the British. However, it also celebrates those traits we consider markedly American. Country music is a matchless American art form. So, it is no surprise that many country stars have patriotic songs. Some even became anthems. In accordance with the July 4th holiday tomorrow, we have collated a list of songs that you are likely to hear on the radio, but would rather play the playlist on this feature.

Country Songs Playlist to Listen To For the Fourth of July 1

“Only In America”, Brooks & Dunn

The song was fatefully released a few months before 9/11 attack, in June of 2001. Ronnie Dunn remembers driving in Connecticut two days after 9/11, realizing that the first line in the song is,

“Sun comin’ up over New York City.” 

The song took on a new sense and quickly reached top 1 at the end of October. From then on, the duo fused local soldiers and confetti when they performed “Only In Americaduring their concerts.

 “All American Girl”, Carrie Underwood

Ladies, prepare to be empowered. Carrie often told interviewers that she was her father’s last chance of having a son. The song became autobiographical, as Carrie was the youngest of three girls. Becoming a winner of American Idol, she has embodied her country around the world, and this song speaks much of why she has become so popular.

“Independence Day”, Martina McBride

It was not meant to be a nationalistic anthem, but the song took on a new meaning after 9/11 attack. “Independence Day” was as a song about overcoming domestic mistreatment. Since then, it has become one of Martina’s most continuing hits. Whenever she performs this at her concerts, she gets a standing applause.

“God Bless the USA”, Lee Greenwood

God Bless the USA” was originally released in the summer of 1984. Greenwood sang the song at the Republican National Convention that year, where Ronald Reagan was voted for a second term. However, the song became a greater hit during the Gulf War in 1991, and then again after 9/11.

“Courtesy of the Red White and Blue”, Toby Keith

The mixture of 9/11 and the fortuitous death of his father inspired Toby to write the song. He told people how his father had lost his eye in the Korean War but always persisted to be positive and loyal to the flag.

“We Shall Be Free”, Garth Brooks

We Shall Be Free” was written during Garth Brooks and Stephanie Davis’ stay in Los Angeles while riots overtook the city after police officers accused of beating Rodney King were cleared of charges. The song victors coming together to build a better world for all human beings, and often reclaims admiration in times of personal or international struggle. In the early times, Brooks’ message of the song was ignored in Nashville, who only listened long enough to be insulted over the song’s defense of gay rights.
