Ever since I heard Scarecrow, I "paid attention" to all JM lyrics.  John, you make singing your songs so natural - there is a natural, earthy flow to what you write; yet constructed in unpredictable ways.  If I feel young on a Monday, tired on a Tuesday or in love on a Friday night.. you have written a song to encourage that emotion.    Nothing more to say than "WELL DESERVED" and "I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!!" - Love you Mr. JM  Congratulations.

Congratulations, John!! This is, as far as I'm concerned one of the most prestigious awards that a musical artist can receive. And, it's about time it came your way. Thanks for all the years of great music!
