Herman Cain has the support of a man who is proud to be an American — and has a song to prove it.

Lee Greenwood, who is best known for his patriotic hit “God Bless the USA,” is part of a group of musicians who offered their support to Cain, a Republican candidate for president, Monday in Nashville. (RELATED: Cain trails Obama by just three points)

The group is calling itself “Artists Raising Cain.”

“I felt now was the perfect time to pull our friends in the music and entertainment community together,” said group co-founder Douglas Warren. “We’re so passionate about this candidate, Herman Cain.”

The group appeared together with Cain at a Nashville book signing Monday.

UPDATE: While the group of country music artists blasted out a press release saying musician Lee Greenwood is endorsing Presidential candidate Herman Cain, Greenwood’s manager told TheDC that the musician hasn’t made any endorsement yet and the group mistakenly included Greenwood’s name in its list of supporters.
