Happy Birthday to legendary singer-songwriter James Taylor, who turns 72 today (March 12th)!!! Last month, Taylor released his latest album, titled American Standard. The covers collection features tunes culled from the “great American Songbook,” including, “My Blue Heaven,” “Ol’ Man River,” “Pennies From Heaven,” “The Nearness Of You,” and “God Bless The Child,” among others. With the new album hitting Number Four on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Taylor became the first artist to earn a Top 10 album in each of the last six decades.
Taylor will be on the road with Bonnie Raitt throughout April and May, and kicks off a spring and summer run with Jackson Browne on May 15th at New Orleans' Smoothie King Center.
