Lee Greenwood is an American country music singer. His discography includes twenty-two studio albums (counting two Christmas albums), seven compilation albus and thirty-eight singles (counting his signature song "God Bless the USA", which was released three times). Of his singles, seven have reached Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts: "Somebody's Gonna Love You" and "Going, Going Gone" from 1983, "Dixie Road" and "I Don't Mind the Thorns (If You're the Rose)" from 1985, "Don't Underestimate My Love for You", "Hearts Aren't Made to Break (They're Made to Love)" and "Morning Ride" from 1986. Thirteen more of his singles have reached Top 10 on the same chart, including "To Me", a duet with Barbara Mandrell from their duet album Meant for Each Other.

Besides his peaks on the country charts, Greenwood has reached the Billboard Hot 100 three times: first with the #53 peak of "I.O.U." in 1983, then with the #96 of "Somebody's Gonna Love You" later that same year. His 2001 re-release and re-recording of "God Bless the USA" peaked at #16 on the pop charts. "I.O.U." was also a #4 on Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks, while the first two versions of "God Bless the USA" were also AC hits: the original version reached #26 on that chart, and the 2001 re-release peaked at #12.
