The story behind one of America’s most iconic songs
You know a song is great when it gets selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant”. “American Pie” is that song. When Don McLean went to write the track, he wanted to write a song about America, but wanted it to be a little different. When he sat down with his trusty tape recorder to start writing, he says the song flowed out of him like a “genie in a bottle”. Check out McLean’s performance of the song above & don’t miss the full story behind this hit plus the rest of his catalog on The Song – Recorded Live @TGL FarmsThursday, August 27th at 8:30/7:30c!
