This one's for him

This One’s For Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark was nominated for a Grammy on December 5 in the Best Folk Album category. Awards will be handed out at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 10, 2013.

A timeless tapestry, lovingly woven by today’s most notable artists, This One’s For Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark is a brilliant record that shall stand the test of time for many years to come.

This One’s For Him: A Tribute To Guy Clark was lovingly produced by Grammy-winning producer Tamara Saviano (Beautiful Dreamer: The Songs of Stephen Foster)—who is also working with Clark on his definitive biography—and frequent Clark co-writer Shawn Camp (“Sis Draper,” “Magnolia Wind”).

The collection was released by Houston’s Icehouse Music in December, 2011. It includes 30 tracks by 33 artists who are friends and colleagues of Clark or who have been influenced by his remarkable compositions. The collection was mixed and mastered by Fred Remmert. Core band members include Camp, Verlon Thompson, Jen Gunderman, Lloyd Maines, Glenn Fukunaga, Mike Bub, Larry Atamanuik, and Kenny Malone. Part of the proceeds benefit the Center for Texas Music History at Texas State University, San Marcos, Texas.

“The first time I heard Guy Clark, I thought it made everything I’d heard up to that point something other than a song. His ability to translate the emotional into the written word is extraordinary.” – Lyle Lovett

“Five words immediately come to mind with the arrival of this long-overdue tribute to one of America’s most remarkable songsmiths, those words being ‘What took so damn long?’ Every performance on this excellent 30-song, two CD set reflects the wrenching emotions that are instilled in every one of Guy Clark’s compositions.” – Blurt
