Christian artist Jodi Essex recently released a southern-rock cover of Lee Greenwood's "God Bless The USA." Essex's version fuses her unique, uptempo-rock style with the melody Americans will find familiar. To bring her vision for the song to life, she enlisted the help of producer and drummer Sean Hill, producer and engineer Zach Kranz, guitarist and bassist Jadan Sorenson, and Pablo Melgar on keys for a few ambient layers. Jodi released a music video alongside the song that is available on all streaming platforms.
She shares: "Though I had heard this song so many times before, it had never affected me this way. I was immediately consumed with the will to do a version of this song. I wanted to actually sing it, this amazing expression of gratitude for our country and all it stands for - home of the free because of the brave."
