Just recently, I did a bunch of studying on this subject and came up with names like Mr. Rodney Crowell who played bass for Mr. Guy Clark before relinquishing his duties to Mr. Steve Earle in 1974. It’s amazing to me how this music scene is a big puzzle that all pieces together. Kind of like Miss Emmylou Harris had Mr. Sam Bush play for her at one time.

Last month the first single called “Dublin Blues” was released from the upcoming sixteen track album that pays homage to his late mentor Mr. Guy Clark. March 29th this album will be available on New West Records, “Guy” was produced by Earle and recorded by his longtime production partner Mr. Ray Kennedy. The project also includes the participation of fellow Guy Clark disciples and cohorts including Crowell, MissEmmylou Harris ( see how that pans out), Mr. Terry Allen, Mr. Jerry Jeff Walker, harmonica Legend Mr. Mickey Raphael, the GREAT Mr. Shawn Camp, Mr. Verlon Thompson, Mr. Gary Nicholson, and photographer Mr. Jim McGuire.

Even though it comes a full decade later, “Guy” is the natural follow-up to Earle’s Grammy-winning LP “Townes,” a tribute to his other chief songwriting mentor, Mr.Townes Van Zandt. Van Zandt died in 1997 while Clark succumbed to lymphoma in 2016. Earle previously appeared on the 2011 Grammy-nominated Clark tribute album, This One’s for Him.
