Song History for “Where Stars and Stripes and Eagles Fly.”
The song “Where Stars and Stripes and Eagles Fly” by Aaron Tippin was originally set to be released in 2000, but his producer did not feel it was a fit for that album. After being shelved and forgotten, it was released as a single two weeks after 9/11/2001. All the proceeds from this single went to the Red Cross to aid the families from the 9/11 tragedy. This song remains a great patriotic song to add to your 4th of July playlist my favorite line dance.
Why the Statue of Liberty?
Inspiration for the use of the Statue of Liberty for this film came from the song line “There’s a lady that stands in a harbor for what we believe.” The Statue of Liberty was inspired by the freeing of the slaves in 1865. Her crown with 7 rays lights the way to freedom. A torch clasped in her right-hand representing progress and lighting the path to freedom, and a tablet in her left-hand symbolizing law. The tablet is etched in roman numerals with date of the Declaration of Independence, July 4,1776. Originally called “Liberty lights the way,” she steps forward with a broken shackle on her ankle symbolizing the break with slavery. This statue was revealed to the world on Liberty island in 1886.
Inspired by Goddess Libertas.
This Lady is not just Royalty, but a Goddess. The Statue of Liberty bears the resemblance of the Roman Goddess Libertas. She is the Goddess of Liberty with a history of freeing slaves. Her legacy began in Greek mythology. From there she traveled to Europe, Columbia, and is embodied int the Statue of Liberty located on Liberty Island in New York. Join this Patriotic Princess with a fun line dance!
