midweek melodies: independence day ditties

independence day On the eve of Independence Day, I thought it’d be good to share a little mix featuring a few of my favorite patriotic, old-country jams. Despite my disappointment by (and disillusionment with) the decision made by our highest court this week, it’s impossible to not feel a wave of national pride swell when I hear these songs. From Loretta Lynn’s “God Bless America Again” to Johnny Cash’s “Ragged Old Flag,” I picked the best of the best (available on Spotify, that is) to share with you today. I hope you enjoy!



P.S. If ushering in America’s birthday on the dance floor sounds like a good time, my favorite local honky-tonk band is the star of a Pre-Independence Day Texas Roadhouse party tonight. Fun starts at 7 p.m. and goes ’til 11 and entry is only $6!
