The CMA also named “God Bless The U.S.A.” its Song of the Year in 1985.“God Bless the USA” went far beyond what Greenwood expected when he wrote it in the back of his tour bus in 1983. The song has been in the top five 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 was also #1 on the pop charts after 9/11/01. Almost everyone has covered the song, from “American Idol” contestants to Beyonce. In addition, CBS News voted “God Bless The U.S.A.” the most recognizable patriotic song in America.
