Guy Clark Tribute with Verlon Thompson & Shawn Camp

Saturday, June 8
7:30 PM

Verlon Thompson & Shawn Camp toured with Guy, alone and together, for decades. They each worked on a bunch of albums with him, picking up Grammy Nominations and Awards along the way. Having spent a big part of their lives in the trenches with Guy, supporting him, learning from him and loving him, they decided to come together to share some special memories and the unforgettable music of their old friend Guy Clark. No Depression magazine said the show was “a touching tribute concert that offered music, memories, humor, happenstance, tall tales and even tears.”

In case you don’t know about this master craftsman songwriter, here’s a list of some artists who’ve covered Guy Clark songs. Jerry Jeff Walker, Tom Rush, Rita Coolidge, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, Slim Pickens, and Nanci Griffith. And that’s just one song, “Desperados Waiting for a Train”. Other songs have been hits for Ricky Skaggs, who went to #1 with Clark’s song “Heartbroke”. Vince Gill had a Top 10 country hit with “Oklahoma Borderline”. Kenny Chesney named an album after his version of Guy’s “Hemingway’s Whiskey”, and it went to #1 on the Billboard Pop Album Chart.
