The summer holidays are fast approaching and that means parades, picnics and family reunions. Music always sets the backdrop for any event, so if you need patriotic music for your local parade, fireworks display, city picnic or backyard barbecue, I have compiled the 21 BEST PATRIOTIC MUSIC CD’S available on Amazon. These patriotic music selections artists include Lee Greenwood, the United States Air Force Band, Kate Smith, the Mormon Tabernacle choir, and many, many more. These aren’t listed in any specific order, and there are several of these compilations that are free for Amazon Prime members. If you aren’t an Amazon Prime member yet, I strongly urge you to become one. They have recently made much of the music they sell FREE for Prime members. Combined with the free shipping for many of their products, the membership is well worth it. You can get your FREE 30 day Amazon Prime trial membership here.
