    Country music's Texas-born troubadour has passed.
    A legendary singer-songwriter who will be missed.
    Guy Clark dead at 74

    Coleman Bonner stood on the porch of that cabin
    And watched em all go to Texas in a covered wagon
    He pulled out his fiddle and rosined up his bow
    And played a little tune called the New Cut Road

    One of my favorites.

    Great song writer. He'd been sick for a while.

    A very great loss for country music. I knew he'd been ill.

    Lyle always plays this one on his acoustic shows.

    Nice tribute to Guy in the intro:

    How great is music?

    I found something to like about Neutral Corner!

    The shows he did with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, and (E Street Joe favorite) Joe Ely were always fabulous, and a lot of fun.

    I love that whole bunch of Texas singer-songwriters. I've seen Ely dozens of times around Houston. The Flatlanders (Joe Ely, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock). Lovett, for certain. Jerry Jeff. Robert Earl Keen. Willie, of course. Billy Joe Shaver. Townes Van Zandt. Stevie Ray. Hell, Buddy Holly.

    I got onto Ely when "Musta Notta Gotta Lotta" came out. I walked into a record shop that I liked, and the guy behind the counter said "You'll buy this record" and dropped the needle.

    He was right.

    You need to check out Willis Alan Ramsey. Only one album, but it was a doozy.
