BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: Nashville’s Sweet Baby James – America's #1 James Taylor tribute artist – returns to Grapevine with his popular acoustic “Walking Man” show.

Join us at the Palace for the timeless music of 6-time Grammy winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member James Taylor, with a performance you have to hear to believe. Bill Griese (aka "Sweet Baby James") sounds so much like Taylor vocally and plays his signature guitar style so faithfully, you can close your eyes and imagine you're listening to the legend himself. But rest assured, SBJ is not a James Taylor "impersonator" — expect a natural, authentic presentation; a respectful & fitting tribute to an American original.

Come enjoy all of your favorites, like Fire & Rain, You've Got a Friend, Handy Man, Shower the People, and of course Sweet Baby James. Get ready for some deep cuts. And see why audiences are raving: "The next best thing to seeing James himself," "It's like having James Taylor in your living room," and "If you're a James Taylor fan, you must see Sweet Baby James!”
