Guy Clark is doing a series of 3 shows at the Country Music Hall of Fame, and I attended my 2nd show tongiht. He's an incredible singer and songwriter, and it is a joy to hear him sing these songs in such an intimate setting. Last week he did 3 hours of his songs, acoustically, just him and his sidekick Verlin Thompson. Tonight he and Verlin were joined by Rodney Crowell and Rodney's guitarist Will Kimbrough. In the audience were Cowboy Jack Clement and Tom T Hall and his wife Dixie and Rodney's Notorious Cherry Bomb band mate Hank DeVito. Lo and behold, but sitting right down the row from me was another NCB, Mr Vince Gill! Vince was having a blast enjoying the show and cracking up over Guy's sense of humor. Guy and Rodney did a great set of songs they wrote together andt then Guy had Vince come up onstage and Vince sang a couple songs he wrote with Guy "Oklahoma Borderline" and "A Sight for Sore Eyes". Vince stayed onstage and played guitar and joined Rodney and Guy on harmony and overall was just having a blast with his pals. After a 15 minute intermission Vince was back in his seat to enjoy the rest of the show. After about 40 minutes Guy said "Hey Benefit, come back up here" and Vince returned to the stage and he mentioned that Guy and Rodney are both on his new box set coming out Oct 7th (don't know if Vince got the right release date). Then he sang another song he wrote with Guy, the beautiful "Jenny Dreamed of Trains". The affection these guys feel for each other was so apparent, they hugged and laughed and at times seemed teary eyed. Vince was really, really enjoying himself. They closed the show with the appropiate Guy penned song "Old Friends". No photos were allowed but Kyle Young, the HOF director said that the website will have some video/audio, so check the site tomorrow or in a few days. Vince looked great in a off white tee and jeans. A great evening. Looking forward to the final Guy show on the 27th.
