About America

Formed in London in 1970 by band members Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell, and Dan Peek, America made a lasting impression on the American folk-rock scene with their psychedelic lyrics and dreamy tunes. Combining pop, folk music, and rock together, America had become one of the leading bands in the genre. By 1972, America had scored many number-one hits and even won a Grammy for Best New Artist. America's folksy, California-rock sounds began to dominate the airwaves, with famous tunes like "Horse With No Name," "Ventura Highway," "Sister Golden Hair," and "Lonely People." After years of success, Dan Peek grew tired of the band's fast-paced lifestyle and became a born-again Christian, opting to leave the group and pursue a solo career instead.

Peek's departure did not deter the band from extending their music career, as America has since continued on as a duo, enjoying success and still performing shows after several decades since their inception. In addition to their commercial success, the group was also inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and they were given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.


America's Breakthrough Album

One can't think of America without a certain song coming to mind: "A Horse With No Name." This song, which came off of their self-titled debut album, launched them to the mainstream and established their dominance in the folk-rock scene. Although originally released to modest sales, they recorded an additional track – "A Horse With No Name" – and rereleased the album, which garnered stellar success thanks to the smash-hit song.

Their debut album thus went on to enjoy a number-one spot on the Billboard album chart for five weeks straight, for which they earned a platinum certification. Their second album, Homecoming, also was a great success, and produced hits like "Ventura Highway," "Don't Cross The River," and "Only In Your Heart." Homecoming's success also earned a platinum certification, and experimented with more instruments for a rock-oriented, fuller sound. The group went on to win a Grammy award for Best New Artist in 1972.

Since their debut album, the group has continued to release a number of records, including Here & Now, which marked their studio comeback, after having not released a major-label studio album since 1984. Here & Now featured many notable guest musicians including Ben Kweller, Ryan Adams, and members from Nada Surf and My Morning Jacket.


America Trivia

Do you know how America came up with their band name?

Growing up in the states, the three founding members of the band America were "Air Force brats," meaning, they were all children of military personnel who happened to be stationed at a U.S. base in London. Attending Central High together, which was an American-style high school, the group didn't want people to think they were British musicians trying to imitate an American sound, and so the name "America" was chosen. The trio briefly parted ways after high school, with Peek going to the United States for an attempt at college, but he soon returned to the UK and the three began making music together as a band.


Fan Experience

Seeing America live in concert really is a treat for music lovers of any generation. America's impeccable harmonies and instrumentals are still perfectly in synch after all of these years, and fans will feel like they've been transported back to 1972. With the haunting "Horse With No Name" and the hit "Sister Golden Hair," not a fan in the venue will be disappointed, as America churns out hit after hit of pure, folksy gold.

Whether you get to see them at a small, intimate venue or a stadium, America fans are always left with an unforgettable night full of good music and memories. If you never had a chance to see America live in concert during their heyday, now's your chance to see them perform all of your favorite songs in person.
