Who’s Crystal Taliefero?… Only the biggest name in backup singers on the planet! Here’s everything you could possibly want to know about Crystal Taliefero. She has performed on hundreds of albums and toured with legendary artists including John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Faith Hill, Brooks & Dunn, Michael McDonald, Bob Seger, Foreigner, Meat Loaf, Garth Brooks, Montgomery Gentry, Van Zandt, and dozens more! See how one girl (me) from Bloomington Indiana now living in Nashville Tennessee has become strangely “connected” to Crystal Taliefero (also from Bloomington and now living in Nashville).
I've been a longtime fan of John Mellencamp -- from back in the days when he used to be called John Cougar. We both lived in Bloomington, Indiana during the time that I attended Indiana University (...and I even went to his house). I bought every album he made and went to every concert I could get to. Here are some random connections I've found with John Mellencamp.
We got our hands on his latest album ‘Born To Roll’ last week… and I haven’t taken it out of the CD player since! Here’s our review of Johnny Reid’s ‘Born To Roll’ CD.
Following are the concerts, jam sessions, and ‘in-the-round’ songwriter nights we’ve been to. You’ll notice that we have a fairly diverse taste in music… Most notable is our appreciation for the little-known — and seldom recognized — songwriters of today’s big hits.
