NASHVILLE, TN -- (Market Wire - Jun 27, 2005) --Multi-platinum artists Gretchen Wilson and Big & Rich, along with Hick-Hop sensation Cowboy Troy, will make their recording of "Our America" available to fans across the country with the help of Chevrolet.

Millions of viewers will be able to hear the song performed live on the Fourth of July during the "Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular" on CBS.

Our America

Wilson: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a
more perfect Union
Cowboy Troy: I have a dream, a dream that one day
Rich: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are
created equal,
And they are endowed by their Creator with certain
inalienable Rights,
Big Kenny: That among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
B&R/GW: Oh say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming
Cowboy Troy: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States
of America
B&R/GW: Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the
perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
Cowboy Troy: And to the Republic for which it stands, one nation
under God
B&R/GW: And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was
still there
Cowboy Troy: Indivisible

Cowboy Troy: With liberty and justice for all
B&R/GW: O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
