Dierks Bentley was in the Nash Country Daily studio this morning to talk about his upcoming album, Black, which drops on May 27, but before he delved into his new project, Dierks took some time to share his thoughts on the passing of Guy Clark.
“I am [a fan of Guy Clark],” says Dierks. “He was such a great poet . . . I never got the chance to write with Guy in Nashville, but I had friends that did, and I’m so kind of bummed that I didn’t because I heard it was just such a great experience, ya know—a lot of tequila, a lot of stories. The guys . . . that came to Nashville and started writing songs before the money came in, these were the guys that really just lived the life. That whole generation is kind of passing on to some degree, it’s definitely sad and I’m sorry to hear of his passing.”
