Memorial Day is a chance to remember those who lost their lives serving our country. Although you might be enjoying a backyard barbecue or heading out on a road trip with your family, make sure you also take time to remember what Memorial Day weekend is really about. In my humble opinion, the genre of country music has a special knack for memorializing our fallen heroes.
With that in mind, I put together this patriotic playlist of Memorial Day songs about America. I hope you’ll blast these songs for the purpose of remembering the meaning of the holiday, as well as those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
“50,000 Names Carved In The Wall” by George Jones
“Color Me America” by Dolly Parton
“God Bless America Again” by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty
“An American Heart” by Faith Hill
“Some Gave All” by Billy Ray Cyrus
“American Soldier” by Toby Keith
“Arlington” by Trace Adkins
“If You’re Reading This” by Tim McGraw
“More Than a Name on a Wall” by The Statler Brothers
