Crash-My-Party

I think most country fans are looking for the charts to get

‘Cruise’ remix on Hot Country Songs and Country Digital Songs, and ‘Here’s To
The Good Times’ remains at #1 on Top Country Albums. Meanwhile, their new

Exclusive: Lee Greenwood is most impressed with Hunter Hayes; Plus, he dishes on CMHOF exhibit and 30 years making music

Lee Greenwood

Lee Greenwood first moved to Nashville in 1979. He later penned the iconic "God Bless the USA" in 1983 in the back of his tour bus. It later won "Song of the Year" at the 1985 CMA Awards, which began its long legacy as the go-to patriotic song. He also possesses a long string of other hits, including “Ring on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands,” “It Turns Me Inside Out,” “Somebody’s Gonna Love You,” “Holdin’ A Good Hand,” “I Don’t Mind the Thorns (If You’re the Rose)”, “She’s Lyin,” and “Dixie Road.” 

As "God Bless the USA" turns 30 this year, he's commemorating the milestone with a spotlight exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, displaying artifacts from his many years of music-making. Nashville Gab had a chance to chat with the singer on-site last week about 30 years in the business, his new EP "I Want to Be In Your World" and how Hunter Hayes has impressed him the most among today's stars.
