A Personal Note from Gillian about Guy Clark


We are so saddened by the loss of Guy Clark yesterday. The world has lost one of its great observers and souls. Guy was one of my most vocal, and inebriated, supporters when I moved to Nashville. He used to recite my lyrics aloud at dinner parties and barrooms to people who said they had never heard of me. He took Dave and I out on the road with him for our first tour through Texas, where I learned more than I could ever say. I could never thank him enough for his support and his artistry. Thank god for all his beautiful songs and recordings, for I don’t know what I would do if I could never hear his voice again. I love you Guy.
