Proud to be a fact checker

It’s easy to think that Lee Greenwood’s famous song is called “I’m Proud To Be An American.” It’s the tune’s signature line and the reason why politicians like it.

The song’s real title is “God Bless the U.S.A.” (Watch the video here.) Under the Dome, a column of political tidbits in The News & Observer, didn’t get this right in the print edition, but the blog version makes the change — and makes note of the update.

I’ll leave it to fans of the genre to decide whether Greenwood is a “country crooner.”
