On a whim, I decided to sort my YouTube videos by views and construct my own “Top 20” list. There’s a lot of Peter Case, no surprise; he’s an artist I’ve been working closely with for many years. Peter’s Fellow Grammy nominee John Fullbright was just starting to get national media buzz when I recorded these clips five years ago in Virginia.

To save you from extended scrolling, I’m posting links rather than embedded videos. Some highlights: Greg Garing’s awesome three-song solo set is definitely worth a listen — his unique voice always gives me chills and his guitar playing is brilliant. Check out #20 Chuck Hawthorne, one of the finest Texas singer-songwriters, little known outside the Lone Star State. The panel presentation by legendary producer Sandy Perelman is required viewing if you’re in the music business.
