    West Virginia native, from deep down in Raleigh County. I usually have one song or another by him on my playlist; lately it's been "Lovely Day".
    And no birds sing.

    The recording of Just the Two of Us with Grover Washington Jr. was absolutely sublime. That dude could flat out sing.

    My wife's dad worked at the coal camp Withers was born, Slab Fork,WVA. The mines is long gone now.

    Withers was a great song writer and had some very great songs that will always stand the test of time. RIP Bill Withers. Thanks for the great music.

    The human spirit at its best. Bill Withers could truly bring it out of people.
