Watch Loretta Lynn’s ‘God Bless America Again’ On ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’

The rich archives of The Ed Sullivan Show have opened again to mark Independence Day weekend in the US with country heroine Loretta Lynn’s performance of “God Bless America Again.”

The song was written by Lynn’s fellow country star Bobby Bare with Boyce Hawkins, and was a No.16 hit for Bare in 1969. Loretta’s appearance with her version was on a special edition of Sullivan that aired on May 30, 1971, shortly after the end of the show’s 23-year weekly run, and also starring the New Seekers, Jack Jones and others.
