Greenwood broke into the country music scene in 1981 with the single “It Turns Me Inside Out,” which charted to No. 17 on the Billboard US Country charts. He has released seven No. 1 songs and charted 25 singles throughout his continuous career. No. 1 hits include “I Don’t Mind the Thorns,” “Dixie Road,” “Somebody’s Gonna Love You,” “Going Gone,” “Don’t Underestimate My Love for You,” “Hearts Aren’t Made to Break” and “Morning Ride.”
The artist is known for writing and recording the widely popular single in 1984 “God Bless the USA.” The song was certified RIAA platinum and reached No. 7 that year. The song reentered the mainstream, reaching No. 16 on the US Billboard Pop charts following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
