Legendary singer songwriter Jesse Colin Young has released a rousing rendition of "America The Beautiful" in advance of the 4th of July Holiday. Young's performance is accompanied by video footage of the vast beauty of the United States, featuring stunning locations from sea to shining sea.
"Coming out of the pandemic we are able to see this country, our America, with fresh eyes," said Young. "I have always loved this song, and wanted to share my version with you so we could revel together in the beauty of this place we call home.”
In late 2020, Young released his 22nd solo album, Highway Troubadour, via BMG. Highway Troubadour marks the first truly solo acoustic record for Young since his debut album, 1964's The Soul of a City Boy.
Recorded with just two AEA A440 ribbon microphones to capture warmth – one for his voice, and one for his guitar – Highway Troubadour features newly-recorded solo performances of songs from Jesse Colin Young’s entire catalog, including a revised take on the Youngbloods’ “Sugar Babe” and an intimate version of “Cast a Stone” from his critically-acclaimed 2019 release, Dreamers."
