Default Re: Who else are you listening to?

There are so many great musicians who I admired.I listen to a lot of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Elvis and QUEEN. But I dearly love Emmylou Harris. And there's Tom Russell who is one who could be considered America's version of Gordon Lightfoot. Tom's songs are like an open history book detailing not only the building of America but also with the world itself. Through both Gordon and Tom's music, I can step out of my day and travel to anywhere in the world to wherever they want to take me. Although I like Bob Dylan, his music has never been able to do that to me. When I listen to a songwriter, I want to live his or her song for those three to five minutes of listening time. Gordon's music allows me that opportunity. I sometimes almost feel as if I should be a Canadian citizen.
