Willie Jones has delivered an arresting performance of his recent single “American Dream” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The musician gave his powerful live rendition of “American Dream,” backed by a guitarist and drummer, in front of screens depicting scenes of patriotism and protest as well as snippets of the single’s music video. “American Dream” was released as part of Jones’ debut album Right Now, which arrived in January this year.
“What a dream come true!” Jones said on Instagram of his Fallon appearance. “Thank you Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show and the team for the opportunity to share my anthem. This was dope!”
Jones released “American Dream” at the start of 2021. The song condemns white supremacy in the United States of America whilst paying its respects to the frontrunners and changemakers making racial equality a nearing reality.
Last week Jones made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry, delivering a duet with Waylon Payne. The two musicians performed Willie Nelson and Waylon Jenning’s timeless 1975 release “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys.”
