No matter how you choose to spend your Fourth of July holiday—whether it’s a day at the beach or enjoying a barbecue with family or friends—a little patriotic music provides the perfect soundtrack for your celebration.
With so many great patriotic songs out there, there is no such thing as a definitive patriotic playlist. But here are a dozen songs that capture the spirit of Independence Day and remind us of what a great country we live in.
While all of these songs have a special connection to this holiday, the song “Bullet Holes in the Sky” by Mary Gauthier is particularly near and dear to our hearts here at Live Happy; it grew out of the SongwritingWith: Soldiers program developed to help military veterans and active duty service members tell their stories.
So this Fourth of July, fire up this playlist for your holiday celebration, and feel free to add your favorites!
