BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – Don McLean, one of America’s greatest singer-songwriters, will continue to bring his music to stages across the U.S. in 2018, with a scheduled performance in Viera, Florida on February 16, at Space Coast Daily Park.
In addition, McLean will soon announce the release of new music.
Most recently, McLean was honored with two awards from BMI (Broadcast Music, Inc.), recognizing his long-standing career and outstanding contributions to the music industry through the iconic hits “American Pie” and “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night).”
Among the honors he received were five million certified airplays for “American Pie” and three million certified airplays for “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night).”
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville recently unveiled McLean’s rare composition manuscript pages of “American Pie” and “Vincent” lyrics, as well as his custom Martin D-40DM signature acoustic guitar, as part of their permanent Sing Me Back Home exhibit.
The display will be available to view through June 2018.
A New York native, Don McLean is one of the most revered and respected songwriters in American history.
After paying his dues in the New York club scene in the late ‘60s, he went on to score mega-hits like “American Pie,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” “Castles in the Air” and many more.

In 2004, McLean was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame by country superstar Garth Brooks. “American Pie” has brought great happiness and hope to millions of people through the years and continues to be honored for its success.
In 2000, the song was named one of the Top 5 Songs of the 20th Century by the RIAA and in 2002 was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Last year brought a huge honor when the iconic song was inducted into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry, joining less than 500 works including “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” classical music compositions, infamous live broadcasts and similar recordings.
McLean continues to tour both North America and abroad bringing a mix of his classic hits with an array of new works, some of which will be released in 2018.
