March 12, 2011 – Happy birthday to singer-songwriter James Taylor who turns 63 today.
Taylor was born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, two places he sings about frequently. He’s won five Grammys during his lengthy career, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000.
Aside from recording and touring, he recently created a series of guitar lessons online.
Here’s an interesting cover of Glen Campbell’s Wichita Lineman, which earned Taylor a Grammy nomination in 2009. (If the video doesn’t start, click on the “Watch on YouTube link”.)
