Vote for Your Favorite Fourth of July-Themed Song!

Featured Member Post

The Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday this year. Are you celebrating with beach, barbecue, or fireworks? I spent some time researching for holiday factoids that might resonate with blog readers and writers:

If you think your blog goes through a lot of edits, you should realize that Thomas Jefferson's first draft of the Declaration of Independence was rewritten 86 times.

My favorite Independence Day trivia of all time is that founding fathers (and friends) John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both passed away on the Fourth of July, in 1826. Now that's patriotic.


This year, we're looking for your favorite America-themed songs. If your picnics or fireworks have a musical accompaniment, which songs would you want on the playlist? Our choices include something for every taste, including traditional folk, rock, country, pop and two versions of our national anthem.

Happy Independence Day everyone, and may the Fourth be with you!
