Singer/songwriter Guy Clark was a prolific country artist from Texas who released over twenty albums across his lucrative career. He first achieved success as a songwriter with Jerry Jeff Walker's recordings of "L.A. Freeway" and "Desperados Waiting For A Train", respectively released in 1972 and 1973. He also wrote songs for artists such as Johnny Cash, Ricky Skaggs and Alan Jackson, and was often considered "The Fifth Highwayman" for his work with The Highwaymen. Clark released his debut album Old No. 1, which featured his version of "Desperados Waiting For a Train" with Emmylou Harris, in 1975 with RCA Records. Several artists have also charted with songs written by Clark, including Ricky Skaggs with the number one hit "Heartbroke" and Steve Wariner, who reached the number one spot with his recording of "Baby I'm Yours." His work as an artist and songwriter inspired fellow musicians to release 2011's This One's For Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark, a two disc set in honor of Clark's contribution to music. After a long and illustrious career, Clark died of lymphoma in 2016 at the age of 74.
