Some of the greatest musicians from country and Americana will gather in Nashville for a musical tribute to the late Guy Clark.

On Aug. 16, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Joe Ely, Vince Gill, Jack Ingram, Jerry Jeff Walker and other artists will perform some of the Texas singer-songwriter’s biggest hits at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

The Songwriter Hall of Fame member and Grammy award winner died on May 17 at the age of 74. He penned hit songs for Rodney Crowell, Steve Wariner, Jimmy Buffett and many others. He was a close friend of Harris, who he collaborated with many times over the years, including on his version of “Desperados Waiting for a Train.”

Clark was also an important mentor to Steve Earle and Rodney Crowell during the 1970s, when his home in Nashville was a gathering point for musicians in the city and was featured in the acclaimed documentary Heartworn Highways.
