This "accent" thing is not meant to be a criticism of the guy - you'll have read my post that states 'These are a few observations'....Only my personal observations, too. It's obvious that Mr TB is very popular- fair enough - I'm happy for anybody that is. Have I criticised his songwriting capabilities? Not at all.The reverse, methinks. They're just not my type of songs, thats all.
You say 'what the hell does it matter what accent he sings in' - It doesn't to most folk, but does to me. Incidentally I'm a fan of bluegrass music and the accent doesn't get more authentic than that - I just have a prob with what I (rightly or wrongly) class as phoney... :-)
I'm still looking forward to catching him live but I don't think I'll feel any different.
Regards to all....Spot
