Rosalyn Carter took copies of James Talley’s three albums to the White House. President Carter even invited him to perform at one of the inaugural parties ... Talley’s music reflects the same kind of soft-spoken determination as his conversation. His songs are attractive in their simplicity. His lucid, poetic lyrics depict universal characters whose stories offer insightful glimpses into Americana.
