Neil Young has revealed that he is a major fan of singer-songwriters Jamey Johnson and Lukas Nelson.

The 'Old Man' singer previously expressed his admiration for Taylor Swift, but told Parade that he enjoys a wide variety of modern music.

"I love music, and there's a lot of great music out there to listen to," Young said. "There's Jamey Johnson - he's a great songwriter and singer, and he's got a really great band."

The musician continued: "There's Lukas Nelson, who I really admire. He's great and I love his music. I love listening to my wife Pegi's band. She's got a great band."

Young was also quizzed on what inspires his songwriting at the age of 66.

"It depends on the moment. It's a mystery to me," he joked. "I try not to think, so that's the main thing. No thinking please!"

Last week, Young released his 35th studio album Psychedelic Pill, which features collaborations with his legendary backing band Crazy Horse.
