Such an amazing songwriter. I have to admit I've only heard his first seven albums but they contain some of the finest examples of musical poetry I've ever heard. His self titled album is utterly incredible and easily ranks among any list of greatest acoustic albums of all time.

I named my son after Townes and Bob Dylan's son, Jakob. Townes' music has meant a great deal to me. Got me through alot of lonely nights and days. If youre looking for lyrics that both mend and wound the heart and soul, and make you think... Townes Van Zandt wrote them in spades!

Townes Van Zandt. An unique figure in music.. Everyone should check on his songs for a class in songwriting. Pretty much the best writer that ever lived.
He has influenced thousands of artists, singers, songwriters, guitarists and alike.. you name it. Townes is the blueprint for alot in music.
