American Dreams is a studio album by American country music group The Oak Ridge Boys. It was released in 1989 via MCA Records. The album peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.[1] It includes the singles "An American Family" and "No Matter How High", the latter of which was the group's last number one hit on Hot Country Songs. "Turning for Home" later served as the title track to Mike Reid's 1991 debut album Turning for Home.
