The great Guy Clark died this week. Most people probably never heard of him — he was much better known as a songwriter than performer — but the Texas native played a critical role in the outlaw-country movement that for a time attempted to redeem country music.
He’s been described as the poet of the movement, and if you listen to his songs it’s an apt description.
Here’s one of my favorites, “Dublin Blues.”
Rest in peace, Mr. Clark. The rest of you, have a great weekend.
