Still touring on the heels of their 40th Anniversary in 2010, America has been on the concert circuit and loving every minute of it. Their most recent release is 2009’s Live In Concert: Wildwood Springs. America began as a trio (Gerry Buckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek) of guys that met in high school in London in the late 1960’s. The band enjoyed massive success very early in their career, garnering the trio a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1972. “A Horse With No Name,” their signature song, made America a household name in 1972. Just a little more than a year later, Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek were superstars riding the airwaves of their rock, pop, folk genre musical stew. When talking about the America sound, Beckley says, “I think that the ingredients of the America sound are the basic fundamentals that translate internationally.” They have always explored a wide variety of musical terrain with their hits being cornerstones of the ‘70’s Top 40 and FM rock radio; some of their best-known tunes being “I Need You,” “Ventura Highway,” “Tin Man” and “Sister Golden Hair.” They have 6 certified gold and/or platinum albums and their first greatest hits collection, History, has hit 4 million in sales. International stardom, pressure, inter-band conflict and an exhaustive touring schedule took its toll on the group and in 1977, Peek left America. Beckley and Bunnell forged ahead and they were soon able to break into the pop charts with 1982’s “You Can Do Magic.” As their audiences continue to grow, they find themselves reaching second and third generation fans while their musical growth has continued unabated into present day music.
