Lee Greenwood will perform at the PAC on Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
Greenwood boasts a lengthy string of hit records, most notably “God Bless the USA,” which has become one of the nation’s most popular patriotic anthems.

Greenwood has been churning out chart-topping records for more than two decades. The native of Sacramento, Calif., was twice named Male Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association.
In 1983, Greenwood earned the CMA Top Male Vocal Performance award for his hit single “IOU.” Two years later, “God Bless the USA” was named Song of the Year by the CMA.
The list of Greenwood’s hit singles also includes “Ring on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands,” “It Turns Me Inside Out,” “Somebody’s Gonna Love You,” “I Don’t Mind the Thorns (If You’re the Rose),” and “Dixie Road.”
In addition, Greenwood reached the country charts with “Ain’t No Trick,” “She’s Lying,” “Hearts Aren’t Made to Break (They’re Made to Love),” “You’ve Got a Good Love Comin’,” and “Going, Going, Gone.”
Greenwood has released more than a dozen albums, and he’s working on two new projects, including a collection of pop standards that features the Ray Charles classic “I’m Busted” and Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.”
