America, the folk rock band formed in London in 1970, consists of members Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell, and Dan Peek. The trio, all sons of U.S. Air Force personnel stationed in the UK, became known for their close vocal harmonies and light acoustic sound. They released a total of eighteen studio albums, including iconic records like America (1971) and Homecoming (1972). The band’s debut single, “A Horse with No Name,” became a global hit and topped the charts in the United States.
