In honor of the Labor Day holiday, three-time Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist and contemporary blues artist, Keb’ Mo’, is offering a free download of his song, “America The Beautiful.” Available on his official website, www.kebmo.com/atb, the track will only be offered through Monday, Sept. 1, 2014.
This is the second time “America The Beautiful” has been offered as a free download. Due to the reaction and popularity of the offer surrounding the 4th of July holiday, Keb’ Mo’ chose to provide the offer once again over the holiday in which we celebrate our country’s labor movement.
Keb’ Mo’ originally recorded “America The Beautiful” for his 2001 GRAMMY nominated album, Big Wide Grin. The song went on to garner national attention and aired on the final episode of the hit-TV drama The West Wing. Keb’ Mo’ was also invited to perform the song at the White House.
This past April, Keb’ Mo’ released his 12th studio album, titled BLUESAmericana, on Kind of Blue Music. Since it’s release, the album has spent several weeks at #1 on the Soundscan Blues Album chart, including a return to the #1 spot after a period of time following it’s release.
Over the past two decades, Keb’ has cultivated a reputation as a modern master of American roots music through the understated excellence of his live and studio performances. B.B. King, Buddy Guy, the Dixie Chicks, Joe Cocker, Robert Palmer and Tom Jones have all recorded his songs. His guitar playing has inspired leading instrument makers Gibson Brands to issue the Keb’ Mo’ Signature Bluesmaster acoustic guitar and Martin Guitars to issue the HD-28KM Keb’ Mo’ Limited Edition Signature model.
