Lee Greenwood is taking his catalog of seven No. 1 singles, 20 Top 10 singles, and 38 hit singles to stages across North America as embarks on “The Hits Tour 2020,” presented by ABC Supply Co. Inc.
Yes, most Americans know Greenwood for his patriotic anthem “God Bless The USA,” which has been performed countless times for presidents Carter, Ford, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush, Obama and Trump. However, Greenwood’s collection of hits (“Dixie Road,” “I.O.U.,” “Somebody’s Gonna Love You,” “Mornin’ Ride,” “Ring On Her Finger, Time On Her Hands,” “Fools Gold,” “Touch And Go Crazy,” “Holding A Good Hand”) remain on the playlists of many country radio stations today.
“I have been fortunate in my career to have had many hit records that people still recognize,” Greenwood said. “I am excited to get out on the road and bring these songs back to the stage for fans to hear.”
Greenwood is set to perform Sept. 25-26 in Niagara Falls. Venue TBA.
Throughout his expansive career, Greenwood has earned multiple CMA and ACM Awards, a Grammy Award for Top Male Vocal Performance on “I.O.U” in 1985, and a multitude of other prestigious award nominations. His stand-out hit “God Bless the U.S.A.” has been in the top 5 on the country singles charts 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 reached the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart shortly after 9/11.
Known for his stand-out patriotism and support of the U.S. Military, Greenwood has been honored with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society’s National Patriot’s Award, and entertained troops on more than 30 USO tours. Greenwood was appointed to the council of the National Endowment for the Arts in 2008 by President George W. Bush, confirmed by the U.S. Senate, and continues to serve on the NEA at the pleasure of the president.
His latest book release is a children’s book called “Proud To Be An American,” which is currently available in stores, on Amazon, and at leegreenwood.com.
