See Don McLean Talk 50 Years Of “American Pie”, Current Projects And More

2021 marks the 50th anniversary of Don McLean’s classic “American Pie”. Watch our conversation about the song, his current projects and more.

Don McLean released his album “American Pie” in 1971.

The album featured the title track single that became a smash hit.

To call the song a classic is an understatement.

In 2017, McLean’s original recording of the song was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant”.

That seems a better description of the song by far.

Don and I recently had the chance to chat about the song’s anniversary.

We also talked about a new album he is working on and his participation in the “Rock Legends Cruise” happening in 2022.

Below you can check out our interview plus Don’s original performance of the song.

Below that you can also check out the recent acapella version of the song Don mentions during our chat.
