"GUY" erzählt die Geschichte einer engen Freundschaft mit ihren Höhen und Tiefen, die mehr als vier Jahrzehnte überdauerte. Das Album ist Steve Earles Freund und Mentor Guy Clark gewidmet, der 2016 an Krebs verstarb. Ein disziplinierter Künstler wie Earle erinnert, der bis zuletzt Songs schrieb. Außerdem malte, Instrumente baute und einen Gitarrenladen besaß. Live aufgenommen in nur sechs Tagen im Herbst letzten Jahres im House of Blues Studio in Nashville, handelt es sich bei den 16 Stücken um Neuinterpretationen von Guy Clark Originalen. Steve Earle und Backingband The Dukes zeigen sich dabei in Bestform.

Steve Earle was nineteen and had just hitchhiked from San Antonio to Nashville in 1974. Back then if you wanted to be where the best songwriters were you had to be in there. Guy Clark had moved to Nashville and if you were from Texas, Guy Clark was king. Flash forward more than forty years. In the fall of 2018, Steve and The Dukes went into House Of Blues studio in Nashville and recorded GUY in six days. 'I wanted it to sound live...When you've got a catalog like Guy's and you're only doing sixteen tracks, you know each one is going to be strong.' Earle and his current, perhaps best-ever Dukes lineup, take on these songs with a spirit of reverent glee and invention. But in the end Guy leads the listener back to its beginning, namely Guy Clark, which is what any good 'tribute' should do. Guy is a saga of friendship, its ups and downs, what endures. We are lucky that Earle remembers and honors these things, because like old friends, Guy is a diamond.
