Memorial Day is a special opportunity to remember those who lost their lives serving our country. Although you might be hosting a backyard barbecue with the best Memorial Day recipes or embarking on a road trip with your family, make sure you also take time to brush up on the history of Memorial Day and remember what this three-day weekend is really about. Country music, of course, holds the art of storytelling in the highest esteem, so what better way to honor our country's struggles and victories than with this group of iconic country songs.
While some are highly emotional tracks by classic artists like Alan Jackson, Glen Campbell, and the great Merle Haggard, others are by newer artists like Thomas Rhett and Zac Brown Band, who put a simpler spin on the American experience. Regardless of who is singing, each song brings to light plenty of reasons to appreciate America and those who protect it.
Whether you live in a small town, like the characters in the lyrics of Brad Paisley's "American Saturday Night," or a big city, there's certainly a song in the mix that can help you celebrate your patriotic pride for Memorial Day. As you plan your summer kickoff weekend with Memorial Day activities, allow these tracks to play through—or better yet, organize a group singalong around the glowing campfire as the sun goes down—as you celebrate the U.S.A. and those who have given up so much for our country. Put this patriotic playlist of Memorial Day songs about America on in the background to keep the meaning of the holiday (and those who made the ultimate sacrifice) at the forefront.
