It was today back in 2001 that 'Only In America'  shot to the top of the charts.  It was the second of three number one hits from the CD 'Steers And Stripes'.

Although many people think that the song was a response to the attacks on September 11th, this song was actually released a couple months before that date.  It was released in June of 2011 but served as a bit of an anthem for rebuilding and pride after the World Trade Center was attacked.  As a matter of fact, the Twin Towers can be seen in the video.
