After 50 years of hit song making and international album sales well into the multi-millions, it’s safe to say that esteemed singer-songwriter and musician Gordon Lightfoot resides with some very exclusive company atop the list of all-time greats. His song catalog is incredibly vast and includes such immortals as Early Morning Rain, If You Could Read My Mind, Carefree Highway, Sundown, (That’s What You Get) For Lovin Me, The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald to name a few. Having recorded 20 albums and earning five GRAMMY nominations, his songs have been aired regularly for decades. Aside from his success in writing, singing and performing his own songs, Lightfoot has found fortune in having his songs recorded and performed by other great artists including: Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Hank Williams, Jr., Marty Robbins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Judy Collins, Johnny Mathis, Anne Murray, Olivia Newton-John, Sarah McLachlan, Barbra Streisand, Peter Paul & Mary, Harry Belafonte, Jane’s Addiction, Richie Havens, Glen Campbell, Toby Keith and George Hamilton IV. Hear Lightfoot talk about his celebrated decades-long career in entertainment, and his latest US tour entitled 50 Years On The Carefree Highway. The event will be moderated by Vice President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman.
