    Well, it's not like it was that difficult a vocal arrangement of that song.:rolleyes: I don't recall seeing Whitney (or Dolly) on this thread? Not at all my thing but definitely some good pipes.

    The undiscovered talent pool in the world is enormous. Plain old folks with a lot of natural ability just going through their day to day lives. If you and I spent 6 months traveling the back woods in our tiny piece of the world we would undoubtedly find at least one picker that would put everyone in the favorite guitar player thread to shame.

    Mary Wilson (Supremes)
    Freda Payne

    Regina Spektor

    My wife and I are going to see Post Modern Jukebox soon. Hope Hayley and a few of my favorites are there.

    Actually, there was a young fellow that played guitar and sang at the same open mic we played. My gosh, this guy had the most beautiful voice...Like Randy Travis and Josh Turner combined....and also one of the best acoustic players I have seen live. I have no idea what this guy was doing at an open mic, when he could have been earning big bucks on a big stage....he was that good!

    Exactly, and there's literally thousands just like that. Like I said, I think a good number of them choose to live a "normal" life, get a job, raise a family, etc. rather than be a starving artist or wait to be discovered. Back when I frequented bars in Tampa, one night you could hear the early iteration of the Outlaws who made it, and on the next night, a now nameless band that were equally as good but for whatever reason went off into obscurity. Go figure, but for certain it is not always talent.

    I don’t think Hayley does the majority of the shows and neither does Scott. I think they are only at the more prestigious shows but either way you will love the show

    Yes, that's my understanding, but still should be good.
