With Fourth of July right around the corner, you’re bound to sit back and relax while enjoying a backyard BBQ. Instead of a side dish, why not bring a well-curated playlist saluting the red, white, and blue to add that extra flair in ambience to your gathering? If there’s one thing the South is certain about, it’s our love affair with America the Beautiful. The pride we have for our country is immeasurable. Sometimes it’s hard to put our patriotism into words, so why not let legends like Cash and Springsteen sing it for you? We’ve composed a list of the most patriotic songs that honor our brave soldiers and acknowledge our beloved nation. These songs will definitely be our summertime anthems and are sure to get stuck in your party guests’ heads. Make sure to add these songs to the queue for your Fourth of July celebration.
