On this day in 1898, William McTier, otherwise known as Blind Willie McTell, was born in Georgia.
Blind from a young age, he picked up the guitar and eventually became a star of his own. His ragtime blues and fingerstyle guitar playing, as well as his use of twelve-string guitars, gained him much fame in the 1930's and 40's. It later influenced many artists, including Bob Dylan and the Allman Brothers Band.
He also had a more soft, laidback voice compared to other rough, harsh blues singers of the day.
So to celebrate here's one of his later tracks called "Love Changin' Blues".
