Thanks for the thread! I'm listening to The Carter Family, Robert Johnson, and Jimmy Rogers. As of now if I had to pick only one it would be Jimmy Rogers' Blue Yodel No. 2 (Lovin' Gal Lucille), but because it combines two styles, without really including the best of either, then adds some Northern influences, I would rather make it third and rather divide the "favorite" between The Carter Family and Robert Johnson. I haven't been able to pick the right songs from each yet. Listening to this stuff again, and to choose between, them has been a joy and thanks to Deadly Sushi for the encouragement.

Well, rereading the thread, I think I was commenting on something other than the original question. My favorite song, done by my most of my favorite performers is Frankie and Johnny.

By the way, does anyone else think the industry needs to figure out a way to encourage more interpretors? Neither Frank Sinatra nor Ella Fitzgerald were songwriters.

I LOVE the song Fallen by Lauren Wood but before that my all-time favoriate was The Air That I Breathe, by The Holly's. All I ever wanted to have someone to relate that song to - now I do - and Fallen too.

But I cannot ignore some of the songs already mentioned - What A Wonderful World - OH MY! Now I can admit I LOVE Elvis since someone else did! I really listen to all kinds of music. Even music I REALLY don't like I still respect the talent of the people performing.

Well, in the cause of love, I have to say my favorite song is "Evergreen," which was the signature song of "A Star is Born" with Barbra Streisand and Chris Kristofferson. The words are Buck and me and they were part of our wedding vows. I still melt when I hear the song.

Google the words, they are sooooo romantic and lovely. And now that we are in our older years, the words: "love, soft as an easy chair" are truly beautiful and especially meaningful at this point in our relationship.

They were performers/entertainers. Not all songwriters can do that (project the intensity needed). Songwriters & singers need to be accompanied by music. And so on it takes a lot of talented people to create harmony.

It was probably not a tour. Our civic center probably booked a James Taylor Performance. There was a commerical on tv for about two months prior to the holidays.

Before his face do over, a community (probably southern IL) booked a Kenny Rogers performance.
