America quickly became an overnight sensation in the early 1970s. Following the huge success of their number one hit single, “A Horse with No Name,” and the top ten single “I Need You,” America’s debut self-titled album quickly went platinum and remained at the top of the charts for five weeks in 1972. The group struck gold again with the release of another top-ten hit, “Ventura Highway.” Their chart-topping status earned America a Grammy Award for “Best New Artist” in 1972.
America continued to have many hit singles including the number one hit, “Sister Golden Hair,” and top ten hits, “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “You Can Do Magic.” In 2006, the band was inducted to the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and members of America still continue to record new material and perform on the concert circuit.
