This week’s Friday Five from National Country Review is dedicated to all our troops; thank you for your service and all that you do for us and this country.

1. Made in America by Toby Keith
This is a fantastic song, favorite lyric? “My old man’s that old man, spent his life livin’ off the land. Dirty hands, and a clean soul.”

2. Letters From Home by John Michael Montgomery
The emotion in this song speaks for itself, and we can’t make it through the whole 4:26 minutes without choking up.
