These tunes will make you proud to be an American.
This time of year, we love to crank up the patriotic country songs and show our love for America. Whether we’re taking a road trip or creating a playlist for our 4th of July BBQ, these songs help put us in the patriotic spirit and show our appreciation for everything we have, and everything that has been sacrificed for our freedom.
Whether you’re planning a casual backyard cookout (complete with a patriotic cake and other patriotic desserts, of course) or just want to relax by the lake, pool, or beach, these songs will surely spark a sense of pride in our beautiful country. (We’d be willing to bet that your friends or dinner guests will know most of these tunes, too, so a spirited group singalong is definitely a possibility.) Take a leisurely listen through these tracks to celebrate all the things you love about the U.S.A., and make sure to queue them up as the perfect soundtrack to your next fireworks viewing or after-dark sparkler celebration. If you need more country jams to keep the patriotic party going, don’t miss our playlists of the most classic country songs and classic summer country songs for plenty more ideas.
