Grammy award-winner Tim McGraw and Pulitzer-Prize winner Jon Meacham will embark on a national seven-city tour to support their book, Songs of America: Patriotism, Protest, and the Music that Made a Nation (Random House – On sale June 11, 2019).
Songs of America is at its heart a celebration of America and the music that has inspired us. Through years of strife and triumph, America has been shaped not only by our leaders, our words and our deeds, but by our music—by the lyrics, performers and instrumentals that have carried us through dark days and enabled us to celebrate bright ones. From the “Star Spangled Banner” to “Born in the USA,” McGraw and Meacham take us on a journey illuminating the eras of history through the music of those times—from the Revolutionary War to the present—that helped define American culture.
The 7-city Songs of America Tour will launch June 10th and includes stops at Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center Charlotte on June 23 and Raleigh Memorial Auditorium on June 24. Presales for the Songs of America Tour begin Wednesday, April 17 at noon local. Tickets go on sale for the general public on Friday, April 19. Visitwww.SongsOfAmericaBook.com for complete information.
