10 Country American Roots Songs For 4th Of July

It's good to have a moment to think about our country, the men and women who serve, and all the folks that make us possible to live in the U.S.A. Check out these songs that either honor, remind, our romanticize the American Dream we've got! 

1. Zac Brown Band - America The Beautiful (Attached to "Chicken Fried" with Leon Russell)
Zac Brown Band is so talented, and that's what makes even a live performance, an awesome one. 

2. Carrie Underwood - All-American Girl
Carrie is that All-American Girl that she talks about! She's one of America's Sweethearts and this song about a little girl and her father is just one of many pictures she paints with her music. 

3. Kenny Chesney - American Kids
With Kenny Chesney, it's all about where you're from, and we love that about him.

4. Brad Paisley - American Saturday Night
Brad loves to be a little satirical with his music, so we love the fact that though we get many things from other countries, we're still having a good ol' American time.

5. Lady Antebellum - American Honey
This one's great because it talks about the purity of home. 

6. Jason Aldean - Fly Over States
We love that Jason points out who all makes it possible for us to live the lives we live in his songs. Otherwise, he makes us think, and that's always a good thing!

7. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert - America The Beautiful
Miranda and Blake are perfectly matched, both in matramony and voice. Listen to them take on this classic. 

8. Brooks & Dunn - Only In America
This one is a bit of a throwback, but sometimes you just need a little Brooks & Dunn.

9. Toby Keith - American Soldier
Toby Keith is another person who always makes us think with his songs. This was wildly popular because of all the men and women serving our country. 

10. Kid Rock - Born Free
Okay, we might be cheating with this one, but Kid Rock crosses country lines with this jam, about being "Born Free." Anyone can get behind that.
