Don McLean is continuing the 50th anniversary celebration of “American Pie” with a brand new version of the all-time classic featuring a capella group Home Free.
McLean said, "I have always performed with a guitar. I felt I was going to lose my security blanket when I didn’t play guitar on this version. Then, all of a sudden, I started to hear it and it just blew me away. The harmonies that Home Free produce with their vocals reminds me so much of The Jordanaires."
Many of the harmonies of the new version are reminiscent of America and The Beach Boys.
You’ll find the new version of “American Pie” on Home Free’s new album ‘Land of the Free.’ The album also includes a new version of the Lee Greenwood classic “God Bless the USA,” which also features the U.S. Air Force Band.
