Today America's Music does what it has always done, bring people together. In American Music every aspect of life, ethnicity, and culture is merged, mixed, and highlighted. The rich diversity of American culture and life is reflected in its lively beat filled rhythms. American music is the story of the country, a reflection of a nation alive with change, filled with curiousity and led by hope and excitement. America's music legacy, be it Blues, Jazz, Country, Rock, R&B or Folk are the songs and artists who have a special power to express what words alone cannot: hopes, fears, dreams, love, hate, anger, pride, aspirations and disappointments.
Because songs span the breadth of human experience, they are uniquely able to communicate across time and space the beliefs and ideas held by their composers, performers and listeners. Folk singers may be of an ilk that rarely goes multi-platinum, but their work truly resonates with people of all walks of life, and their legacy is astounding. 'America' Music Legacy' showcases the musical legends performing the songs that continue to attract and entice the whole world, because they truly are the best of all that is America.
