Tim McGraw will release Songs of America: Patriotism, Protest and the Music That Made a Nation via Penguin Random House June 11.

The anthology book is written in collaboration with historian Jon Meacham and compiles the songs that served as the soundtrack for the American Revolution, Great Depression, and Civil Rights Movement among other defining political events.

According to Amazon’s pre-order, “From ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ to ‘Born in the U.S.A.,’ Jon Meacham and Tim McGraw take us on a journey through the eras and the music that helped to shape a nation.”

McGraw has written two children’s books in 2008 based on his song “My Little Girl,” and co-wrote a book about he and his band The Dancehall Doctors in 2002. He also wrote a book based on his 2016 song “Humble & Kind.”
