Singer-songwriter James Taylor is the winner of his sixth Grammy Award, for his most recent studio album, “American Standard,” released in February 2020. The citation is for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, as cited by The Berkshire Eagle.

“What an embarrassment of riches to be here in the mountains skiing and just getting the news,” Taylor said in a video message posted on Twitter as he rode a ski lift in Montana.

He offered congratulations to the team that worked on the critically lauded album of 14 pop and Broadway classics, including his wife, Kim, the Fantasy Records label, co-producers John Pizzarelli, the noted guitarist, and longtime collaborator Dave O’Donnell, as well as studio manager Ellyn Kusmin.

In great JT style, he accepted his award during this first virtual Grammy Awards while in the midst of a family ski trip, as seen in the great acceptance video below, which he posted online. “What an embarrassment of riches,” he says, smiling from the sunny slopes:

JT’s reverence for the traditions of great songcraft, grace, and magic in the remarkable melodies and lyrics on every page of the Great American Songbook is palpable in every measure of these songs. This album and his genuine love for these timeless treasures go a long way in reminding the world how much beauty lives forever in these songs. They represent, as Ry Cooder said in these pages, a high point in the artistry of the American song.

And hearing James Taylor, a beloved huckleberry friend in our lives for decades, sing “Moon River” alone is so poignantly right. Of course, his connection to this song isn’t random; it’s a powerful and personal one that informs and inspires his rendition. As he explained last year in our interview about this album, and specifically about “Moon River”, reported American Song Writer.

“It’s a corny old song for sure,” said James, “but there’s no question that it has huge emotional power. It refers to Huck Finn on a raft with the river carrying him into his own life, into his future.

Here is full lyrics of "Moon River" - James Taylor:

(originally by Audrey Hepburn)

"Moon River

Wider than a mile

I'm crossin' you in style

Some day

Old dream maker

You heart breaker

Wherever your goin'

I'm goin' your way

Two drifters

Off to see the world

There's such a lot of world

To see

We're after the same

Rainbow's end

Waitin' round the bend

My huckleberry friend

Moon River

And me

Two drifters

Off to see the world

There's such a lot of world

To see

We're after the same

Rainbow's end

Waitin' round the bend

My huckleberry friend

Moon River

And me

It's you and me"
