James Taylor appeared on the cover of TIME magazine on March 1, 1971, and with that symbol of immortality, the singer-songwriter movement officially entered a bold new era. “The New Rock: Bittersweet and Low,” the TIME cover proclaimed. The author of such hits as “Fire and Rain,” about his own battle with drug addiction, and the lullaby “Sweet Baby James,” Taylor became a mainstay at the Troubadour, a legendary West Hollywood nightclub whose regulars included Carole King, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt, a fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee who will join Taylor July 31 for the first-ever pop concert at the Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, part of the Dallas Cowboys’ $1.5 billion, 91-acre complex. Chances are good that he will sing “Fire and Rain” and “Sweet Baby James,” and Raitt will regale us with her knockout ballad, “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”

Legendary singer/songwriter James Taylor & His All-Star Band and special guest Bonnie Raitt and her band will appear at the Ford Center at The Star, the Dallas Cowboys headquarters in Frisco.
