This Sunday is the 234th birthday of the United States of America, and across the nation people will be watching baseball, illegally shooting off fireworks, eating apple pie, and generally swelling with patriotic pride. And on radio stations across the land, Studio 360 will modestly proffer a new national anthem for your enjoyment: 'Beauty of America.'

Performed by the indie pop outfit The Apples in stereo and penned by their frontman Robert Schneider, 'Beauty of America' is a bouncy, march-like tune succinctly (and I mean 48-seconds-succinctly) heralding equality, peace, and the country's natural beauty.

Next week, we'll broadcast the rest of The Apples' in-studio performance and Robert's conversation with Kurt.

In the meantime, make sure to tune in this weekend to hear the results of Studio 360's Uncle Sam redesign challenge.
