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.

American music is the story of the country, a reflection of a nation alive with change, filled with curiosity 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.
