Ray Stevens — ‘Dear America’ is the Patriotic Song America Needs Right Now [VIDEO]
Goosebumps! As we commemorate the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on America, a new song by singer, songwriter, and TV host Ray Stevens is a beautiful open letter to America that is just what America needs right now.
'Dear' America' will give you goosebumps.
"I give my word that I will not forget that dark September day,
When we learned that others hate us, and it took our breath away.
Dear America, no I won't forget the families who hold a photograph,
and the thousand vivid memories, and a neatly folded flag."
'Dear America' is written by Connie Jo Hamrick, the wife of Stevens' keyboard player. He says he loved the song right away, and immediately wanted to record it.
"I think the song is very appropriate for the situation in America today," added Stevens.
