Lee Greenwood, writer and singer of the timeless classic God Bless the USA said on the Palin Update with Kevin Scholla that being on the campaign trail with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was terrific. Greenwood made stops in Las Vegas and Scranton, PA during the 2008 campaign. He traveled to Alaska as a teenager and wrote Home to Alaska. "Sarah Palin is the most delightful person in person. She is a great family woman, a great wife. Her husband and her have a terrific marriage. It was great to get to know her," he said.
Greenwood said Gov. Palin is smart, "knew where to draw the line between on stage and off stage," but spread herself thin by giving of herself to others. "I liked how she ran her ship," he said.
God Bless the USA was written in 1983, became Number One in Nashville in 1985 and was used on the campaign trails of Presidents Reagan, George H.W. and George Bush, and also across the aisle. It helped unite the nation after the 9/11 atrocities.
Greenwood’s "The American Patriot" exhibit will be at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN for a year.
Though our freedoms are under attack, Greenwood’s lyrics remain timeless. He is considering revising the lyric: "men who died" to "ones who died," to honor the many women in military service.
Greenwood said a Palin administration would be much different from the Obama administration, specifically respecting our Constitution and all its Amendments.
Gov. Palin referenced God Bless the USA on social media recently and Scholla harkened back to his interview of her cousin JD Morgan who is a rock singer. Greenwood said he has heard Gov. Palin singing behind him and she sings well.
Greenwood only wears his trademark red, white and blue jacket for public patriotic events and it is on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Greenwood and Scholla discussed trends in the country music scene. Greenwood goes on tour this November, he is working on a live album including fan-submitted pictures, corporate shows. Last year, he published Does God Still Bless the U.S.A.?
