America, an English-American folk rock band who became a musical sensation in the early 1970s, will be in concert at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, July 7, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $27 each.
America is best known for hits such as “A Horse with No Name,” “Sister Golden Hair,” and “Lonely People.” They reached the number one spot with several of their hits and won a Grammy for best new musical artist. America celebrated 40 years in the music industry when they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier this year.
Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell are the front men for America. They are joined by band members Michael Wood on guitar, Will Leacox on drums, and Rich Campbell on bass.
