GUY CLARK TRIBUTE FEATURES SOME OF COUNTRY MUSIC’S BEST
Vince Gill, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Steve Earle, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell, Lyle Lovett and a slew of other singer-songwriters have recorded songs for This One’s For Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark, set for a November 1 release date on Icehouse Music.
The album includes 30 tracks, recorded in Nashville and Austin and produced by Tamara Saviano and Shawn Camp.
Raised in Texas, Clark has spent the past 40 years in Nashville with his wife, the songwriter and painter Susanna Clark.
“Guy’s songs are literature,” Lovett said in a statement. “The first time I heard Guy Clark, I thought it made everything I’d heard up to that point something other than a song. His ability to translate the emotional into the written word is extraordinary.”
The album’s release is timed to celebrate Clark’s 70th birthday, on November 6, 2011.
