Message:  "Blue Sky Shining" is a favorite of mine.

We live in an era of what I call "phony gospel riffs", singers who don't bend notes, but skip from note to note. I don't know where this came from, but it is so irritating. American Idol contestants do it, Mariah Carey, etc., do it.

I like to tell people--listen to the Blues, listen to Mickey Newbury. Bending notes--that's where the soul is! "Blue Sky Shining" is my favorite. He is all over that song!

"Oh, how sweet..."
