It's very ironic that just this week while surfing the net I rediscovered his song Sometime Soon and listened to many versions. Judy Collins made it popular around 1969 and Suzy Bogguss made it hers in the early 90's. I'm a casual country music fan. I used to hate the steel guitar sound. Now I appreciate all the different stringed instruments.
89 years is a good run. Respect and RIP to Ian Tyson
My Dad would play either an Ian Tyson or a Hank Snow album once in a while, usually on a cold winter Saturday morning, reading a book with a mug of coffee nearby. Hearing Four Strong Winds again brings back good memories of Dad.
