Here are some Country and Americana music performances by fathers and their children. I hope you like them.

    Thanks for these – I enjoyed them. Though I can’t hear “Help Me Make It” without thinking about a video of Kris and Rita singing it together, very obviously in love (easy to find on YT). That then made me wonder whether any of Kris’s kids are musical. I know he and Rita had a son, you would think those genes would have produced some talent. Of course there are those (like JT Van Zandt), who make a conscious choice not to live that life.
