Guy Clark Master Songwriter

Guy Clark Master Songwriter | Penning Songs | Scoop.it

Today happens to be the 70th birthday of Guy Clark. He's aTexan, and so am I, but that's not the only reason why his songs appeal to me. He doesn't just write about the Lone Star State, he writes about all kinds of subjects and issues. He's a real story teller, you're right there with him, no matter what place or situation he addresses in his songs. Whether it's about his late father's watch, or hurricanes, he brings words and images to life and often touches our hearts. 

 

Happy Birthday Guy and many more!
