As I drove home in silence tonight trying to decide what to write for Veterans Day the words just didn’t seem to come.
What did play in my mind were several songs. I thought I’d share some of them with you here as a way to say thank you all Veterans.
Give them a listen and then let me know which songs you would have included too.
To start the list is the National Anthem. Martina McBride shines in this version.
Trace Adkins sings from a soldier’s perspective in “Arlington”.
John Michael Montgomery’s “Letters From Home” is another good one. The third verse always gives me a lump in my throat.
I like “Riding With Private Malone” by David Ball because I could picture the video in my mind before I ever saw it.
No list of songs for Veterans Day would be complete without “American Soldier” from Toby Keith.
“Some Gave All” is my favorite tune by Billy Ray Cyrus.
Toby Keith gets two songs in this list. Here’s “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue”.
Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless The USA” is a classic.
Here’s Aaron Tippin’s “Where The Stars And Stripes”.
This is a great song and live performance by Tim Mc Graw singing “If You’re Reading This”.
Thank you to all Veterans! We appreciate your service and salute you today and every day!
