List of artists who have covered Van Morrison songs

Van Morrison (born George Ivan Morrison on August 31, 1945) is a Northern Irish singer-songwriter who has been a professional musician since 1960. He has won six Grammy awards and was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2003. Morrison began to write and record his first original songs while frontman for the band Them and in the years since has written hundreds of songs, many of them covered by popular and major artists.
