Lee Greenwood is an ICON in country music, with more than 30 albums to his credit. He has won numerous industry awards including, Male Vocalist of the Year for the Academy of Country in 1983, two Male Vocalist of the Year awards from the Country Music Association in 1983 & 1984 and a Grammy for Top Male Vocal Performance in 1985 for "I.O.U." He has also won CMA Song of the Year in 1985 for writing "God Bless the USA." The song, "God Bless the USA": has been voted the most recognizable patriotic song in America.
The singer knows first-hand what it's like to have loved ones fighting for the freedom of all Americans as his father served in the Navy & the Merchant Marines in World War II. "USA" is now part of the film for Homeland Security shown when swearing in new citizens of the United States.
"God Bless the USA" went far beyond what Greenwood expected when he wrote it in the back of his tour bus in 1983. The song has been in the top five on the country singles chart three times (1991, 2001 and 2003), giving it the distinction of being the only song in any genre of music to achieve that feat. It was also #1 on the pop charts after 9/11/01.
Greenwood says; "USA is the song I always felt the need to write. I wanted to have something that would unite Americans from coast to coast and to instill pride back in the United States. The song represents my family, my community and those men & women who have paid the price for the freedoms we all love & enjoy."
Music has always been a part of Greenwood's life. He started playing the piano when he was seven and the saxophone at 12. In junior high, he started his first group called the Moonbeams. By the time he finished high school, he played most all instruments in the orchestra and was the Drum Major for the marching band.
The California native was discovered in 1979 by Larry McFaden, who saw him performing in a show at the Nugget Casino in Sparks, Nevada. Larry was the bass player and bandleader for Mel Tillis. He brought the singer to Nashville and got him signed to the Halsey Agency, who booked the Oak Ridge Boys. He began working with producer Jerry Crutchfield who would record with Lee for the next 20 years.
