This singer-songwriter is known world wide.
I won’t tell you the country he was born in because you might get him too fast, EH!

I wonder if he was in the FOREST when he wrote the quiz song?

1. Who is the singer, eh?
2. What is the song?

Hint #1: Dec10: I might be an "OLD MAN" before anyone get's this one.
Hint #2: Dec 10: Edmund knows this singer. Fitzgerald knows him too. I don't want to wreck the quiz by saying too much. I will say this, it's not the boat song.
