James Taylor & Jackson Browne Reschedule Tour For 2021

James Taylor and Jackson Browne have rescheduled their postponed 2020 joint sates, pushing the arena trek to the spring of 2021. As it stands now, the 27-city run will now kick off on May 14th, 2021 in New Orleans at the Smoothie King Center and wrap on July 10th, 2021 at Wantagh, New York’s Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.

During a recent chat with PBS, James Taylor spoke candidly on how he handles his music and career today: [“Life for me is pretty realized. The blanks are filled in. I know who I love, I know who my family is, I know who my musical community is that I work with. I have friends who do this also, who basically say — ‘Y’know, I don’t think I’m that motivated by it anymore. I’m not that interested in having people’s attention, or, y’know, having them focus on me.’ But I seem to be endlessly interested in it and I like my audience, too. What I seem to feel more as time goes by is grateful.”] SOUNDCUE (:30 OC: . . . by is grateful)

Jackson Browne, a member of both the Rock and Roll and Songwriters Hall of Fame, was asked about what, if any, price a songwriter pays by writing songs that go deeper than romance and relationships: [“Y’know, nobody wants to be scolded, or lectured, or preached to. So, it’s a challenge to write songs that engage people, that challenge them to look inside themselves and examine their own feelings. The question I’m asked again, and again, and again is whether or not writing songs that have a political aspect or that have a social conscience has damaged my career. Because it’s sort of a given, it’s an assumption that most people make that if you go around talking about these things that you make people uncomfortable, people don’t wanna hear it — and that you can’t really change anything, and those who try are somewhat self-deluded.”] SOUNDCUE (:34 OC: . . . somewhat self-deluded)
