Totally agree. Check out Black Night from Damn Right I've Got the Blues.
Love Vince Gill but Joe Bonamassa does a pretty fare job of both as well.
Why have I not found the best ( or at least my favorite )...Johnny Winter?
#1 is Bill Callahan without a doubt
#2 is a man who said all his favorite singers couldn't sing- Stephen Malkmus
I'd have to go with Richard Thompson.
For me its my two Man Crushes....
1. The alltime best singer guitar player ever.....Tony Rice
2. Close second.....Vinnie Gill
Lots of good ones have been said already. I'll add Bert Jansch on the folky side:
And I've always thought John Hall of Orleans deserved more props. They were a lot more than a "soft rock" band. He's a triple threat: singing, playing, and songwriting at a very high level:
(Larry Hoppen's no slouch either.)
Gilmour & Harrison: show
But he sounds like a goat... LOL.
Freddie King would most likely get my vote.
There's quite a few good ones already listed, but I haven't seen Jeff Healey yet. Actually Jeff Healey, Robert Cray, and Johnny Lang.
Maybe an acquired taste? But I think Richard's fantastic.
The man does take some chances with his guitar playing...never a dull moment.
David Byrne; so he's leftfield, is that a bad thing? He did a televised gig with Richard Thompson a while ago
Impossible question, of course...but I'll throw three names in the hat:
LOTS of of others, as you can see in the posts above (and certainly. below)...
James Taylor. I'm not a huge fan but Sweet Baby James pretty much defined the role of the singer/acoustic guitarist/songwriter in American culture.
SEAN COSTELLO !!!
For me, I'll go with Richard Thompson and Bruce Cockburn.
clapton comes to mind but so does jerry garcia
I love me some Tom Waits, an acquired taste, too - I get it.
