The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that country-music star Lee Greenwood will perform at the 2015 Bradley Prizes ceremony on June 3 at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

Greenwood’s talent will help celebrate the 2015 Bradley Prize recipients:  Hillsdale College president Larry P. Arnn, University of Virginia professor James W. Ceaser, AHA Foundation founder Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and retired U.S. Army Gen. Jack Keane.

Greenwood won the Grammy Award for Top Male Vocal Performance in 1985, as well as the Academy of Country Music's Male Vocalist of the Year and two Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year awards.

His song God Bless the U.S.A. is one of the most widely recognized patriotic songs.  God Bless the U.S.A. topped the pop charts following September 11, 2001.  It also has the distinction of reaching the Top 5 on the country chart on three separate occasions.

"We are pleased to have Lee Greenwood perform at the Bradley Prizes this year," said Michael W. Grebe, president and chief executive officer of the Bradley Foundation.  "His music reflects American pride and unity and will be a fitting tribute to the 2015 Bradley Prize recipients."
