Sing, Sing a Song

Or sing two -- at once. That's what JT did when invited to sing the national anthem for Game 2 of the 2013 World Series at Fenway Park in Boston. Forgetting just why he was in Boston in the first place, Taylor launched into "America the Beautiful" with all the patriotic gusto he could muster. Admittedly, the smooth transition into the correct song -- the national anthem -- was a thing of beauty and should have become the latest dancehall mash-up, and would have if it wasn't, well, so folky.

Why all the JT hate ?  Has RFT gone crazy right and this crap is all about his support for Obama ? As far as luck having anything to do with his success that is crazy. His lyrics, chord changes and voice had everything to do with his decades of huge success. Hey, is this really fox news ?
