“Steve Earle sings to his hero, Guy Clark” – listen at NPR All Songs Considered
Steve Earle met Guy Clark after hitchhiking from San Antonio to Nashville in 1974. A few months after his arrival, Earle replaced a young Rodney Crowell as bassist in Guy’s band. Regarding the impact his mentors made in his life, Earle says “Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark were like Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg to me.”
