Talley, James, Woody Guthrie & Songs of My Oklahoma Home
Singer-Songwriter James Talley was born in Tulsa, moved to Washington, New Mexico and then Nashville. Critically acclaimed but not widely known, he fused blues, country and social commentary into his songs. Eventually, he landed a contract with Capitol and released four albums for that label. First Lady Roslyn Carter once declared James Talley to be her favorite singer. His moving collection of Woody Guthrie songs has been called “Hands down the best Guthrie tribute collection ever recorded” in The Nashville Scene.
