“We are honored to bestow this award to a true patriot, Lee Greenwood,” said CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp. “This is only the third time we have inducted someone into the CPAC Hall of Fame, and there is no one more patriotic and deserving than Lee Greenwood and his American ballad ‘God Bless the U.S.A.'”
