America formed in the late 1960s and quickly reached the top of the charts with their signature song “A Horse With No Name.” Their best-known tunes, which also include “Don’t Cross The River,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “Sister Golden Hair,” were cornerstones of 1970s Top 40 and FM rock radio. In 1972, America was rewarded for their hits by winning the Grammy for Best New Artist. Their albums—six certified gold and/or platinum, with their first greatest hits collection, History, hitting four plus million in sales—displayed a fuller range of the group’s talents than did their singles. Their material encompassed an ambitious artistic swath, from effects-laden rockers to oddball medleys to soul-bearing ballads.
In 1982, America once again hit it big with their smash single, “You Can Do Magic.” America experienced growth as singers, songwriters and musicians during this period, which has continued into the present day. America continues to be a band capable of transcending borders with its uplifting music and positive message. Embracing a rainbow on divergent cultures, America’s audience continues to grow, comprising a loyal legion of first, second and third generation fans, all bearing testament to the group’s enduring appeal.
Treena Parvello, Director of Public Relations and Communications for the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, said, “For nearly half a century America has been thrilling audiences with their uplifting music and positive message. With multi-generational fans, America continues to grow in popularity and Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment is excited to bring them back to the Diamond Center on June 28!”
