Ten artists to see this summer (wherever you may be)
1. Guy Clark
I’ve been hearing rumors that Guy Clark isn’t in the best of health. True or not, he will be appearing in the Texas area, Louisiana, Montana and all the way up north to Canada. One of the great Texas songwriters and best friend of the late Townes Van Zandt, Clark’s influence on country music is prolific.
Clark performing “Hemingway’s Whiskey” from 2009’s Sometimes the Song Writes You
Earle Performing “I’ll Never Get Out of this World Alive” in Austin, TX.
Prine performing the classic, Angel from Montgomery
“Beyond Here Lies Nothing” from 2009’s Together Through Life
As mentioned in the review of his latest album, So Beautiful or So What, Paul Simon is the “Pimp of the Baby boomers.”
8. Robert Earl Keen
Now this is Texas Country. 2009’s The Rose Hotel proved that REK’s still an Outlaw, makin good music.
