Review: Lee Greenwood fantastic on new book ‘Proud To Be An American’ (Includes first-hand account)

His children’s book consists of the lyrics from his signature song, the patriotic staple, “God Bless The U.S.A.” and with the use of the exceptional illustrations by Amanda Sekulow which match the lyrics, he is able to introduce it to a brand new generation of fans. His book was released via his publisher, Clovercroft Publishing.

“God Bless The U.S.A.” has been hailed as the most recognizable patriotic tune in the country, and it is the sole song in history to top the country charts three times after major national events in 1991, 2001 and 2003, and the pop chart after September 11, proving its longevity and its iconic status.

Most impressive about Greenwood is that by writing this children’s book, using the lyrics from “God Bless the U.S.A.,” he is instilling the same love and enthusiasm that he has for America to the younger audiences. He also offers a free download of a re-recorded version of “God Bless the U.S.A.” which is utterly fantastic.

It is safe to say that Greenwood’s latest book Proud To Be an American is as equally powerful as his dynamic vocal performance. The fact that it is being released just in time for Fourth of July, makes it even more compelling. It is no wonder that it was the No. 1 best-selling children’s book on Amazon, and rightfully so.

The Verdict

Overall, Lee Greenwood’s new book is a compelling text, that is recommended for the entire family, in an effort to celebrate America and teach the youth about our country’s greatness. It is well-written and the illustrations are colorful and top-notch. Greenwood outdoes himself yet again. It garners 5 out of 5 stars.
