Cyrus re-recorded the tune for his 2011 album, I'm American
with Jamey Johnson, who was a member of the Marine Corps reserves for several years, along with Craig Morgan, who is a U.S. Army veteran, and Darryl Worley
. "Each of those artists, I knew the heart and the soul that they would put into the song," Cyrus told The Boot
. "When they came in to sing the song, [they] didn't carry a lyric sheet into the vocal booth. They sung the song from their heart, they knew the words."
