Description
(Winner of the 2013 Best Folk Album Grammy Award) "Just a Polaroid shot / Someone took on the spot / No beginning, no end," sings Americana legend Guy Clark on the title track of his first album in four years, a tribute to his late wife. "If you were a songwriter, you wanted to be sitting at the kitchen table of Guy … [and] Susanna" said NPR in a recent profile. "Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell and many others would gather around for guitar pulls and long boozy nights spent swapping songs." Emmylou Harris also reveres Clark's wry, poetic songs and performs them often. "It's hard to imagine the world of music or the world of language without Guy," she told NPR. "He really embraces the human condition. There is no judgment in Guy's songs.... You know that everyone has been on a rough road."

"This deeply felt collection of acoustic songs … touch[es] on love’s pratfalls ('Hell Bent on a Heartache'), the artistic process ('The High Price of Inspiration'), and rascals ('I’ll Show Me'). In other words, classic Guy Clark."—Boston Globe

"One of the best of his storied career…. The new album’s small-combo acoustic settings—melding two-steps and Tex-Mex, Spanish guitar and honky-tonk fiddles—suit the songwriter’s weathered vocals. With ebb-and-surge guitars doing the driving, the characters in 'Death of Sis Draper' meet their fate in a narrative that plays like a four-minute movie: 'Some folks go to heaven, some folks go to hell / Sis Draper went to Arkansas / That’s all there is to tell.' 'Cornmeal Waltz' turns a dancefloor and 'I’ll Show Me' a saloon into swirling slices of rural life that cut across generations and eras."—Chicago Tribune
