James Taylor fans are in for a treat, because the five-time Grammy Award winning singer and songwriter’s childhood home can be bought at an auction on June 29in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
According toTopTenRealEstateNews.com, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artistlived in the house from the age of 5 until he venturedout on his own. Taylor hasalways considered his residence in North Carolina as his “home,” and he especially favored the guest house on the property where the initials of his siblings, friends, and his own ones can be found carved into the wood.
Taylor went from a troubled teenager to one of the best selling artists of all times. He worked with the best in the business and after obtaining a fan base he married Carly Simon in 1972. His marriage followed a two-year music hiatus during which he spent time with his new wife and two children.
The music star resumed creating new albums in 1974 with huge success from which many of the singles, including some duets with his wife, became number one hits. The flame burned out in 1981, and by 1983 Taylor and Simon were officially divorced.
Taylor rebounded after hitting some low spots after the divorce and has continued to make albums since then, including his 2015 best seller, “Before This World.”
