05 JUL 2019: In 2012, for the launch of Discover America and for the very first global marketing campaign to promote US tourism, Grammy award winner and songwriter Rosanne Cash wrote and performed the song “Land of Dreams.” The video was released on the United States' tourism website Discover America. We thought it appropriate to remember it now.

In the video for 'Land of Dreams,' Cash is surrounded by musicians representing a wide array of styles and cultures, playing all manner of acoustic instruments. This song got to heart of America's appeal to people around the world.

The idea and the appeal of the song was to welcome visitors who knew that the US was a place they wanted to visit and  a place they wanted to be.

As Cash sings in the chorus, "There's a place for all you feel, It's closer than it seems, Come and find your land of dreams."

Something to remember.


Lyrics

I heard you calling from the start
A river runs through both our hearts
A thousand shades of something new
I cannot wait to play for you
So play your songs and make them real
There's a place for all we feel
And it's closer than it seems
Come and find your land of dreams
Land of dreams, land of dreams
Come and find your land of dreams
And it's closer than it seems
Come and find your land of dreams
The world is smaller in our eyes
The city streets and moonlit skies
The shining waves and evergreens
I will give you everything
Well you can hear the bells and strings
Just wait until you make them ring
And it's closer than it seems
Come and find your land of dreams
Land of dreams, land of dreams
Come and find your land of dreams
And it's closer than it seems
Come and find your land of dreams
Land of dreams, land of dreams
Come and find your land of dreams
And it's closer than it seems
Come and find your land of dreams
