This Monday is our nation's birthday and I thought we would pay tribute to our country with some patriotic songs this weekend.  I am hoping you will join me this Saturday from 6am to 10am for Wide Open Country. I will be taking your requests at 644-WYRK and toll-free at 1-800-696-WYRK, and also off the WYRK text line at 716-393-0213. You are also welcome to email your requests at:  johnlamond@wyrk.com

The beautiful thing about country music is that we have so many truly wonderful patriotic songs that are part of our format here at WYRK.  There are many that still give me goosebumps no matter how many times I hear them. A perfect example would be Lee Greenwood's "God Bless The U.S.A."  I am really looking forward to the show this Saturday morning and hearing from you as well.

Here's Toby Keith's "American Soldier" This is what Independence is all about.

One of the most played songs on Independence day has to be Lee Greenwood's "Proud To Be An American"

Listen this weekend to hear more.
