NASHVILLE – Legendary American singer, songwriter, and performer Don McLean recently signed a third extension to his ongoing administration deal with Universal Music Publishing Group, worth $4.5 Million.
With songs like “American Pie,” “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night),” “And I Love You So,” “Castles in The Air,” “The Grave,” and countless others to his credit, McLean’s relationship with UMPG goes back to 1990.
The second leg of McLean’s 2018 World tour also kicked off yesterday (Oct. 1) in Essen, Germany, and will take him through Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, and Finland and Norway.
McLean also recently became a celebrity ambassador for Teen Cancer America (TCA) after attending and performing at one of the charity’s Backyard Concert Series events in August. McLean was invited by Teen Cancer America charity founder Roger Daltrey of The Who to the star-studded event which raised over $3.5 Million for the charity that evening.
