"A triumph ... entertaining, informative, patriotic and emotionally thrilling. It's a walking, breathing, singing history lesson." — Sandra Roberts, The Tennessean, Nashville

"Fun ... scrupulously well-balanced" and appeals to "all political perspectives." — Cal Thomas, syndicated newspaper columnist and author

"The core message of 'Freedom Sings,' delivered within an amazing celebration of music, is vivid and undeniable.

Bravo!" — Kira Florita, Country Music Hall of Fame
