Videos of Summer: Independence Day (1994)

Martina McBride's "Independence Day" has nothing to do with the actual celebration of the holiday, though a parade is depicted on this day in the video, but has to do with a woman gaining independence through extreme means from her abusive husband.

The story is told from the point of view of the woman's daughter, who was 8 at the time. The chorus will be familiar to listeners of conservative radio/TV talk show host Sean Hannity, who uses the song without the permission of its author.
