Honoring American Heroes

Country music's biggest stars celebrate the inspiring efforts of individuals facing extraordinary circumstances in six-part series.


Across the country, in every community, unsung heroes are quietly working to improve the lives of others. Their inspiring efforts often receive little fanfare—until now. AMERICAN ANTHEMS celebrates everyday heroes with surprise songs from today’s biggest country music stars. Each episode will follow a different featured country star as they meet a local hero and learn about the transformative experience that inspired their commitment to making a positive change in their community. Then, working with a songwriter, the star will secretly turn the hero’s story of kindness, hard work and perseverance into an epic original song. At the end of the episode, the hero will be surprised by the artist with a once-in-a-lifetime performance of the emotional life-honoring anthem while surrounded by family and friends.
