Colorful, Fully-Illustrated Hardback is named A Bestseller Following Memorial Day Release
“After more than 30 years of singing ‘God Bless The U.S.A,’ I’ve watched my song be passed down to three generations,” Greenwood said while on a media tour this week in New York City. “Given the unrest in America today, and the U.S. having to defend its very existence with much of the world, I felt it was time to give the next generation something to hold and read, that tells in a very simple way why it’s good to be an American and why we should be proud of it.”
Along with the lyrics and a free download for a never-before-heard rerecord of “God Bless The U.S.A,” Proud To Be An American features colorful illustrations by Amanda Sekulow that paint the portrait of scenic farmland and cityscapes throughout the country, American soldiers, and even Arlington Cemetery.
“The illustrations in my book paint in a childlike way, a picture of this country in colorful snapshots that teach geography, pinpoints the cities that they soon will know and visit, and show on several pages the servicemen and women that we honor,” Greenwood added.
“Reading to my own children when they were young was a way for my wife and I to hold them close and bond with them while teaching them all they needed to know about life,” said Greenwood. “It’s my sincere hope that this book will become an educational tool for all parents, grandparents, and even teachers at schools throughout the U.S. to help teach the lessons of patriotism at an early age.”
Released by Clovercroft Publishing, Proud To Be An American is currently available for purchase online at LeeGreenwood.com, Amazon and in various bookstores nationwide including Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, Christian Family Stores and others.
After a national TV appearance last night on Hannity on FOX News, (in case you missed it, watch here), Greenwood is slated to appear at Book Expo America trade show in New York City this week and will commence his national tour performing at fairs, festivals, casinos and theaters immediately following. Tune in on July 3 to watch him perform LIVE as part of the FOX and Friends All-American Summer Concert Series kicking off Fourth of July weekend.
