America
Boasting three singer-songwriters and a variety of styles from folk to Beatles balladry to California pop, America dominated the AM waves for half a decade. But by 1977, co-founder Dan Peek, tiring of the rock lifestyle, became a born-again Christian and left the group. Backed by songs from noted tunesmith Russ Ballard, the group continued as a duo, scoring a hit in 1982 with Ballard's "You Can Do Magic," but never quite regained their foothold on the charts. The now-duo continued to sell, though, and has never really stopped touring; in 2007, they staged a studio comeback with Here & Now.
