Country Songs for Veterans Day

by Cyndi Hoelzle  |  November 11, 2013

Country music has always been the place to go for flag-waving patriotic songs. It's also the format that has most profoundly explored the cost of war. For this Veterans Day, we've chosen to eschew the "boot in your ass" songs (which could make up a playlist all their own) in favor of songs that celebrate those who have served. Here are 20 tracks that beautifully address the issues veterans face, from the difficulty of transitioning from the battlefield to civilian life ("I Just Came Back from a War") to the sacrifices of those left at home ("Sleeping with the Telephone").
