List of Top 10 Most Beautiful Patriotic Songs of All Time till 2017
10. America the Beautiful
It’s hard to imagine a more well known patriotic songs that the ever classic American the Beautiful. Written originally as a poem in 1895 by Katharine Lee Bates for the fourth of July, it was put to music in 1910 when it was paired with a composition written by Samuel A Ward. As most Americans know, it speaks of the beautiful nature of our great country as well as liberty and freedoms we take for granted in everyday life. It speaks of the sacrifices made by those long ago, and the message is one that can carry through the decades to include the sacrifices made after it was released; a truly moving song.
9. Star Spangled Banner
Short and sweet, the Star Spangled Banner was written in 1814 by Francis Scott Key after he witnessed the failed attempt by the British to take an American during the War of 1812. This song packs more feeling and patriotism into a minute and a half than most songs of today can put into three or four minutes. It speaks of the U.S flag flying high, still visible through the smoke of bombs and the haze of the morning sun, instilling in Americans everywhere the confidence that nothing can bring down our country or our flag.
8. Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue By Toby Keith
A rather different approach to patriotism, Toby Keith takes a no holds barred approach to love of country and retribution after the events of 9/11 with Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue. Promising to rain hell upon those who would attack us, the song is both a promise to fight back with a vengeance and a challenge to try our might. Redneck mentality at its best, the song is relatable to Americans around the world and aptly defines the heightened responses of the time period in which it was released.
7. American Soldier By Toby Keith
American Soldier by Toby Keith is the embodiment of the promise every enlisted man and woman has given and kept for the American people on since the day they signed up to defend us. A promise to give their time, effort and life to protect all that makes this country great, the song tells of a father giving up time and holidays with his family to work any and all hours or places required of him. Promising to provide for the future of people he doesn’t know, the song reminds us that freedom does not come free.
6. Made in America By Toby Keith
Taking yet again a different approach, though one most can relate to, Toby Keith shows his love of country by promoting anything and everything American made and/or grown, from tangible products to ideologies and traditions. Standing up for what we have to offer and promising to be and keep all that is made in America, Made in America sends a message that not only is it acceptable to prefer things American made, for some, it is a way of life. This is one of the Top 10 Most Beautiful Patriotic Songs of All Time till 2017.
5. In America By Charlie Daniels Band
More redneck mentality at its finest, Charlie Daniels Band takes the classic concepts of sibling rivalry and family togetherness and likens them to the American people in In America. Speaking of a country down on its luck in recent years, a country that may be down but definitely not out, Charlie Daniels assures the world that though we may fight amongst ourselves, in no way is that an invitation for anyone else to think they can come between us.

Freedom isn’t free is not a new concept by any means, but Trace Adkins gives it new meaning and a fresh look for those who may take freedom for granted. The song Arlington is the story of a man coming home from war to be laid to rest in the nations cemetery as a hero and true patriot after giving his life in service to his country. Laid to rest with his brothers in arms on what he deems a peaceful piece of property, there is no greater honor and no tears needed for the chosen ones laid to rest in Arlington.
2. God Bless the USA By Lee Greenwood
Not only for natural born Americans but also the thousands of immigrants flocking to our shores yearly, being an American citizen is sometimes worth more than anything else in the world, as evident in Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA.

1. Ragged Old Flag By Johnny Cash
Ragged Old Flag is a story of the flags battered but proud history told in the gruff but provocative voice of Johnny Cash. The story is of a flag that has suffered cuts and burns, weathered the worst kinds of storms and battles, been soaked with the blood of fallen Americans, and even lasted through dishonor and disgrace. The story comes from an old man sitting in the square of a small nondescript town, and old man with a long memory and unlimited pride in the symbol of a country that grew up fast and strong, built on the backs of men who didn’t always understand what the symbol stood for, but fought for it nonetheless.
