Dad Loves His Work is singer-songwriterJames Taylor's tenth studio album. Released in 1981, it is best remembered for the duet with J. D. Souther "Her Town Too", which reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Top 5 of Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. "I Will Follow", "London Town", and the haunting "That Lonesome Road" are additional album tracks. This album was certified Platinum in the United States.
The album's title was, in part, drawn from the reasons for Taylor's divorce from Carly Simon. She gave him an ultimatum: cut back on his music and touring, and spend more time with her and their children, or the marriage was through. The album's title was his answer, and the divorce took place soon after.
