  1. Mrs. Baker says:

    James Taylor was actually born in Massachsetts, but he was grew up in North Carolina. He is still a very popular artist here in the United States among adults that are probably your mom and dad’s ages (maybe even a little older), but he was a “star” in the 1970’s. He sang “Fire and Rain” and “You’ve Got a Friend.” You can still find him on Google and watch You Tube videos of his performances!
