The thrill of being acknowledged by one of the finest singer songwriters in the world is something every musician longs for. When that praise comes from someone who wrote the piece you perform, well that is special.

Gillian Tuite is a singer from Oldcastle, Meath and yesterday she was shared on the official Instagram page of musician James Taylor. The American singer-songwriter is a five-time Grammy Award winner, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 100 million records worldwide.

Famous for songs like “Fire and Rain” Taylor is renowned for beautifully crafted ballads that touch the very soul. Gillian's cover version of his beautiful song 'Only One' got the thumbs up and a repost on Taylor Instagram page.
