A Georgia man celebrated the Fourth of July by playing the national anthem in front of a large American flag painted onto hay bales at a property in Wrightsville.

The flag was set up by William Sumner of MidWay Straw Company, who told Storyful he created the patriotic symbol for the second year in a row. Local media reported that “anyone is welcome to stop by” to check out the flag.

This video shows Erik Powell playing “The Star-Spangled Banner” on an electric guitar in front of the flag on July 4.

Erik Powell’s brother, Derek Powell, told Storyful they are friends with Sumner and “really big fans” of the hay bale flag. Derek Powell said they wanted to film a video playing the national anthem and thought Sumner’s creation would be a fitting backdrop.

    Thank you for that beautiful display and music. My granddaughter was born on the 4th of July and we have a lot of veterans in the family so we have a lot to celebrate. God bless America. From Texas ya'll.

    Pretty cool. Sounded a tad Hendricks-esque and the hay stack took some real work.
