Presented by Exceptional Artists

In 2015, AMERICA marked their 45th Anniversary as a perennial classic-rock favorite! Founding (and current) members Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, along with former band mate Dan Peek, met in high school in late 1960s London and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song, A Horse With No Name. AMERICA soon became a global household name and paved their way with an impressive string of #1 hits. After all these years, this group of friends are still at it, making music together, and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound on songs like I Need You, Ventura Highway, Tin Man, Lonely People, and Sister Golden Hair.

AMERICA’S albums – 6 certified as Gold/Platinum, with their first greatest hits collection, History, hitting 4+ million in sales – display an even greater range of talents. AMERICA won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1972 and began working with George Martin in 1974.
