You can sort of feel a little bristle when you ask Lee Greenwood about his defining song “Proud To Be An American.”
It’s understandable. Greenwood has loads more on his resume than just that song, having hit the charts dozens of times in his legendary career.
But a song that powerful, that evocative of certain moments in our country’s recent history is bound to come up in every interview, every appearance, and every concert.
But Greenwood’s career is unique and remarkable well beyind that early 80s smash. The guys speak with him about that, his time as a blackjack dealer in Vegas and his remarkable career spanning over 60 years.
Greenwood will be performing at Pfeiffer Hall in Naperville on Friday, May 19 at 8:00. Tickets are available https://finearts.northcentralcollege.edu.
