Their list of hits is seriously impressive. From their first No. 1 single, “Horse With No Name,” to “Ventura Highway,” “Sister Golden Hair” “Lonely People,” “Tin Man,” “Daisy Jane” and more, the band America found a sound as solid as their name, showcasing their gorgeous harmonies and folk-rock melodies, resulting in a Grammy and a spot in the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
Founding members Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell have been together almost 50 years, after meeting in high school, and are still touring. What’s more, they’re making new music as well, hooking up with indie artists for 2007’s well-received Here and Now. That led to a couple more albums, including 2015’s Lost & Found, with previously unreleased tracks, plus a greatest-hits box set.
