What songs make you feel most American?

Name your favorite patriotic tunes


We were talking on this 4th of July morning about the songs that make us feel patriotic.

A few immediately came mind.  I still get chills almost every time I listen to Ray Charles singing America, The Beautiful.

Of course, God Bless the U.S.A. by Lee Greenwood is up there.

One that may be a bit of a less common choice, for me, is Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band... especially that part in the middle of the song that pays tribute to "the ones who died, the ones that give their lives so we don't have to sacrifice all the things we love."

Take a listen to my top five most patriotic songs...

5. Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A.:

4. Zac Brown Band's Chicken Fried:

3. Whitney Houston singing the Star Spangled Banner:
