     Another thread got me thinking of this as a topic. Over the years I tend to listen to one artist or band more than others. The Band and the Moody Blues dominated my listening for quite a bit of time in years gone by. But the last 25 years or so I seem to reach for a particular artist more than others, though of course I listen to various types of music and sometimes just prefer instrumental guitar music, especially those Nashville cats. ie Studio Musicians

      Anyway for me it's Jackson Browne

So who do you listen to "the Most"

Wow. Tough call. Over the years, it would have to be the three B's ... Beatles, Band, Bob. Browne might be the 4th. Lately ... Nelson, Haggard, Jones, Cash get a lot of play.

It varies as am I sure it does for most everyone, but a quick scroll through my iTunes library indicates that Lincoln Brewster dominates my playlist.
I listen to Bebo Norman and Dave Barnes a good bit too.

It changes from time to time.
Another vote for The Band. That went on for years. And I saw Levon Helm again just 30 days before he died last year. I could have posted LH under the favorite vocalists thread the other day.
OK, and the Beatles. I always come back to those guys. (Check out the 2-DVD set:  Living In The Material World by George Harrison and Martin Scorsese. 3 hours of great stuff.)
And Jackson Browne, too. When he first arrived on the scene, and then again about 2 years ago for quite a while.
Right now I'm in the middle of another Joni Mitchell phase. Her music never gets old.

Oh yeah. The Subdudes rock. They're about the closest thing to Pure Americana since the Band broke up. Them and BoDeans.

The question of a single band that I have listened to the most isn't easily answered.  It all really depends on what era of my life I am thinking of.  Some standouts include Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, and currently Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree.

Lately it's been Fred Eaglesmith, Richard Buckner, and the Alabama Shakes.

But you said "one artist"  so I guess Fred Eaglesmith would top the list right now

Fred's awesome and gets quite a bit of rotation with me as well but I gotta say, I prefer him live and in person.

Yes, Fred is quite a character.  He probably spends almost as much time talikn' between songs as he does singin'.   I see him every time he comes around my area.   He has a way of turning a phrase in his songwriting that seems like he's just tellin' you a story.

Robert Earl Keen.
Takes a while to warm up to his voice, but the guy sure knows how to put a song together.

U2 probably by a long shot. Taught myself "I Will Follow" (it is that simple) and I've been hooked ever since.

Like many of you, my favorites have changed over the years.  Currently, I would say I'm tending more towards "country swing" if that's the right term for it.  I like listening to Asleep at the Wheel, early KD Lang, Cowboy Junkies.  Also enjoying early Soul/R&B.  Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, etc.

This is one, like many of you before me stated, varies a lot.  For the one artist right now it is Meschiya Lake and the Little Big Horns.  They are from New Orleans.  She just won the Big Easy award for best female vocalist for the 3rd consecutive year and the Little Big Horns won best traditional band.  I figure one must be pretty good to take first in those categories in New Orleans.  Her voice is amazing and the band is equally good.  Close seconds would be Brian Martin and Tony Rice.  I will have to check out the Sub Dudes.  I'm not familiar with them.  And a little J. S. Bach everyday is very good for the soul.

He almost incited a riot at the last concert I attended. It might have gotten ugly. There were a bunch of young idiots at the back of the room who wouldn't shut up. I know he doesn't suffer fools gladly but I think it's dangerous to egg on people to shut other people up. Saying things like, "In my day, some bigger guys would go back there and straighten those assholes out" is walking on shaky ground.
