Stevie Nicks has cast her vote in the upcoming 2020 Election. Sharing a photo of herself appropriately masked and holding her completed ballot, Stevie reminded all that it’s “Six days until Election Day.” In an unprecedented year of COVID-19 viral infections and divisive politics, Stevie has been more active than usual on her social media pages, emphasizing the importance of coming together and showing personal strength.
In October 2020, Stevie released the inspiring track “Show Them the Way,” a song based on a dream in which she performed at a political benefit where attendees include Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, John Lewis, John F. Kennedy, “This song really is a prayer. This song is a prayer for people to unite. A prayer for people to get together,” Stevie explained to the Associated Press.
“The chorus, and I can sing it for you, it goes, ‘Please God show them the way/Please God on this day/Spirits all give us strength/Peace will come if you really want it/I think we’re just in time to save it/Please God, oh please God, show them the way.’”
Produced by Greg Kurstin (Sia, Adele, Beck), ‘Show Them the Way’ features Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl on drums and The Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart on guitar. There’s also an accompanying music video interpreting aspects of Stevie’s dream, which was directed by filmmaker and rock journalist Cameron Crowe (Say Anything…, Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous). The black-and-white video consists of a photo montage of significant events occurring in American history; Stevie appears briefly at the beginning and the end of the 6-minutes-41-second clip. “Show Them the Way” is streaming online now.
Stevie Nicks has cast her vote along with 66 million Americans, who have already voted early. More than 150 million registered voters are expected to vote in the upcoming election.
