Weather Alert

Today, we celebrate our Independence and all the great songs that came alone with it!

The vote for independence was favored on July 2, 1776 and just two days later, on July 4, the delegates from 13 colonies adopted it.  Thomas Jefferson drafted the declaration, and today we continue celebrating this country’s independence.  It became a federal holiday back in 1941, so for 79 years we have been blowing off fireworks and listening to songs about America, grilling, chilling and of course, drinking!

Here is a list of the top 20 songs about America.  Can you think of any others?

“Billboard” put together a list of supposedly “awesome” songs about America.  But you might want to keep in mind that they’re not all PATRIOTIC songs . . .(and what happened to “God Bless The USA?”)

Many of them are about things that are WRONG with the country.  So maybe gauge who’s at your barbecue before you hit play on some of these . . .
