How sweet it is to celebrate decades of timeless music from James Taylor. In honor of his 72nd birthday, Taylor stopped by SiriusXM to share insights on select songs, his audio memoir, and new album, all of which you can hear on The Bridge (Ch. 32).

American Standard isn’t just the name of James Taylor’s newest album (released this past February), it also speaks to his reputation as an enduring, trend-setting musician. In fact, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recently set a record as the only artist to earn a Top 10 album in each of the last six decades with the help of his 19th (!) studio album debut.

During A Celebration of Song with James Taylor, listeners can hear the music legend dish on music new and old while also speaking about Break Shot, his new memoir. Break Shot has recently been making headlines for Taylor’s candid storytelling that covers everything from buying drugs for John Lennon to the tragic story that inspired “Fire and Rain.”
