Winner: Bonnie Prince Billy
Howard Yang: cmon- johnny cash covered one of his songs, and he might have one of the best r. kelly covers ever- bonnie prince billy hands down. plus he's not a holy roller who can't even finish that 50 states project cause it was a terrible idea in the first place
Sue Wood Goodall: Totally Bonnie Prince Billy - Sufjan is a jackapple. Those freaking cheerleaders on the illinoise tour? I was unable to be amused by their attempts at irony. And I was loaded.
Emily Finton: Bonnie but I don't have a problem with Sufjan. We're all on a first name basis. ... I'm pretty sure you'd never see Sufjan at Frazier's.
Jesse Morgan: Plus, didn't he live here for a while (or was that just Ned Oldham)?
Kim Cee: He totally lived here!!!
J.t. Dockery: Will Oldham aka Bonnie Prince Billy...trust fund dude from one of the oldest moneyed families in Louisville, Ky. But, like, he seems nice.
Robert Sherwood: Will Oldham because of his affiliation with a good ol' friend. Predictable unfunny smart-ass comment from Scott Hedeen in 3, 2, ....(at least make it funny, Scott)
Matthew A. Dahl: Sufjan Steven's body of work is far superior, but then who doesn't want a whole orchestra behind them to make them sound fantastic? (Orchestras for all!) Also, he is HARDLY a holy roller. Probably the most humble and respectful musician who also happens to have beliefs out there. Just sayin'.
Jack Livingston: BpB, because I have no idea how he manages to elevate his material into such a strange and twisted place.
Patrick Smith: In this order:
1. A root canal
2. Sufjan Stevens
3. Bonnie "Prince" Billy
