Laura’s Weekend Anthem: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

Before you head out to your barbecue, remember why Memorial Day exists and check out a few of our favorite country tunes that honor our fallen soldiers.




\”American Soldier\” – Toby Keith
\”Oh, and I don\’t want to die for you, but if dying\’s asked of me/ I\’ll bear that cross with honor \’cause freedom don\’t come free.\”


\”If You\’re Reading This\” – Tim McGraw
\”I\’m laying down my gun. I\’m hanging up boots/ I\’m up here with God, and we\’re both watching over you.\”


\”Travelin\’ Soldier\” – Dixie Chicks
\”Our love will never end/ Waitin\’ for the soldier to come back again.\”


\”8th of November\” – Big and Rich
\”On the eighth of November the angels were crying as they carried his brothers away.\”


\”I Drive Your Truck\” – Lee Brice
\”Momma asked me this morning, if I’d been by your grave/But that flag and stone ain’t where I feel you anyway.\”


\”Just a Dream\” – Carrie Underwood 
\”Then they handed her a folded-up flag, and she held onto all she had left of him… Oh, and what could\’ve been.\”


\”Some Gave All\” – Billy Ray Cyrus
All gave some, some gave all/ Some stood through for the red, white and blue, and some had to fall.\”


\”Arlington\” – Trace Adkins
\”I\’m thankful for those thankful for the things I\’ve done/ I can rest in peace, I\’m one of the chosen ones/ I made it to Arlington.\”


\”For You\” – Keith Urban
You don\’t think about right. You don\’t think about wrong/ You just do what you gotta do, to defend your own.\”
