LEE GREENWOOD,  AWARD-WINNING SINGER/SONGWRITER,
RELEASES NEW MUSIC COLLECTION
I WANT TO BE IN YOUR WORLD
Lee Greenwood - I Want To Be In Your WorldNashville, TN (July 29, 2011) -- Music legend Lee Greenwood has been busy touring, raising a family, building support for our military troops, recording and songwriting. Now for the first time in five years the award-winning singer/songwriter releases a new EP disc, I Want To Be In Your World.  The set of seven songs was co-produced by Greenwood along with Butch Baker and Tony Smith. Greenwood displays the depth of his musical chops on vocals, songwriting and instruments with this versatile music collection.
The diverse style of songs on “I Want To Be In Your World” unmistakably reveals Greenwood as a musical force in any genre. The Grammy winner recorded three self-penned songs for this project.  “Choosing songs to record is always exciting. I love lyrics that have depth and emotion,” states Greenwood.  “I am thankful for the many writers & artists who have contributed to my career,” says the California native. On the new collection, he recorded the poignant ballad, “I Can Let Go Now,” which was written by pop tunesmiths Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins.

Greenwood has become America’s musical hero over the last two decades with the resurgence of his 1991 hit song “God Bless The USA.”  The American public has embraced the patriotic song as the un-official national anthem, as of 9/11/2001, when it landed in the #1 spot on pop charts. The song written by Greenwood has charted in the top five on country charts three different times (1991, 2001 and 2003), making it the only song in any genre to achieve that feat.

These days you might see Lee Greenwood on a USO Tour, at a national political rally, a NASCAR race or on stage at your state fair grandstand. However, you can always count on hearing his still stellar vocals and moving lyrics no matter the vehicle/platform.
