In this episode, I take apart one of my own songs, and I show you, from sharing the personal anecdote that lead to the decision to write the song, how the general tone of the song was selected, and why some specific word/line choices were made…
I enjoyed this song when I heard Jeff Bridges sing it. I fell in love with it when I heard Ryan Bingham, who wrote it, sing it.
Guy Clark, in the rich tradition of incredible Texas songwriters is responsible for more beautiful songs than I can count. Dublin Blues is one of my favorites of his, especially with the wonderful Emmylou Harris joining Mr. Clark in this live rendition. Enjoy!
