Lee Greenwood Gets Hall of Fame Spotlight

Lee Greenwood has been a fixture in country music since the early 1980s as one of the rare triple-threat artists: singer, songwriter and accomplished musician.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville is honoring Lee's lasting legacy with a special spotlight exhibit, Lee Greenwood: American Patriot, which opens to the public on May 10. The exhibit traces Lee's life and career from his childhood in California to the present day, with a special focus on Lee's best-known song, "God Bless the USA."

Fans will get an up-close look at several items from Lee's career, including his Country Music Association and Grammy awards. Lee was named the Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year in 1983 and 1984. Other featured items include awards presented to Lee from military organizations along with stage clothes and instruments. Lee Greenwood: American Patriot will run through April 25, 2014.
