5 Songs That Pay Tribute to the American Flag

January 28, 2019 2 min read

Country music is by far the most patriotic genre of music we have in America. Top country music singers have written, recorded, and performed numerous songs showing their love for the nation, the military, and old school American values.

Other than writing and performing riveting songs to celebrate America, many country singers have written beautiful songs honoring the US flag too.

Let’s take a look at some of the songs that pay tribute to our beloved flag:

1. American Flag on the Moon

Despite what the conspiracy theorists say, the truth is that Americans were the first to land on the Moon. It was a moment of immense pride for us and should be celebrated.

Brad Paisley’s “American Flag on the Moon” is probably one of his most underrated songs. The song was included on Paisley’s hit album, Moonshine in the Trunk.

The song urges his listeners to keep their dreams alive no matter the circumstances, because “after all, there's an American flag on the Moon."

2. This Ain't No Rag, It's a Flag

After the 9/11 attacks, Americans were desperate for hope. Charlie Daniel’s song “This Ain’t No Rag, It’s a Flag” challenged anyone who dared go up against America.

Throughout the song, the band chants “USA!” as its lead singer belts passionate lyrics showing his devotion to the country and its flags.

3. Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue (The Angry American)

Charlie Daniel’s wasn’t the only one who felt the need to pen a heartfelt anthem after 9/11; outspoken Country singer and supporter of the US military, Toby Keith, created “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue (The Angry American)" in response to the attack.

Keith’s made several patriotic songs throughout his career, but according to critics, this one is by far the most stirring.

4. Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly

Aaron Tippin also created “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagle Fly” after 9/11. His song was directed at hard-working, blue-collar Americans as he played tribute to the nation’s greatest icons.

The song hit No. 2 on Country music charts.

5. Ragged Old Flag

Johnny Cash’s poem, “Ragged Old Flag,” is the epitome of patriotism. The poem was originally a spoken word piece and was later used as the title track on the singer’s 47th album. It was a response to the Watergate scandal when patriotism amongst Americans was diminishing after the Vietnam War.

In 2017, the poem was used in the opening video of the Super Bowl as a response to the Colin Kaepernick controversy.

Flagpoles were subpar and with marking around the middle that with suggested cleaning methods, never worked. Had to get them powder coated. Worst customer service possible!

I would love to write a review but I haven't got my product yet when will I receive it


Beautiful finish on quality materials. My install is not typical. I previously made my own pole out of 1.5" steel pipe with welded brackets to bolt to the hand rail and joists on the corner of my deck. It served it's purpose but never looked nearly as nice as it does now. I simply made nylon bushings to fit tightly between the steel pipe and the 3" aluminum pole and slipped it over. So far the highest wind we've had was 47mph and this configuration didn't flex at all with the flag at top mast. The flag is thicker material than most, and again, top quality material and craftsmanship. The best part for me is that this is 100% made in the USA. The only piece of the kit I didn't use was the nylon flag clips. You can upgrade to snaps that won't clang against the pole in the wind. Customer service was quick to respond and great to talk with. I will unquestionably buy another one for my next home!

Hard to find someone to do the job properly ,but after two weeks we finally got it in.
It is awesome and my neighbors are jealous. A couple of them have the telescopic flags so I enjoy telling them that mine is bigger than yours!
