Six-time Grammy Award winner James Taylor has a voice unlike any other and lends additional depth to songs where he’s a guest. There’s nothing like a Saturday night with his charming vocals accompanied by his skilled guitar work. Such an easy treat for the ears. Taylor’s guest appearances embellish other artists’ songs too. From country to folk and blues, we’re reviewing seven memorable collaborations. Let’s take a look!
About the Song: Taylor wrote Bartender’s Blues as an early attempt on his part to write outside his usual genre, stepping into country music. He took a different slant with the lyrics than the typical country songs of the day. The unhappy bartender gets to tell the story instead of a lamenting customer.
About the Song: Ben Glover wrote Don’t Try So Hard with Amy Grant. The faith-based ballad features harmony guest vocals with James Taylor. Grant invited Taylor to collaborate, and he worked on the song from home.
