Clark was an American folk singer, musician, songwriter, recording artist, performer and luthier. He released more than twenty albums, and his songs have been recorded by other artists including Jerry Jeff Walker, Jimmy Buffett, Lyle Lovett, Ricky Skaggs, Steve Wariner, Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson.
He won the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Folk Album: “My Favorite Picture of You”.

Clark was born in Monahans, Texas. His family moved to Rockport, Texas in 1954. After he graduated from high school in 1960, Guy spent almost a decade in Houston as part of the folk music revival in that city.
He and his wife Susanna Clark eventually settled in Nashville, where he helped create the Americana music genre. His songs “L.A. Freeway” and “Desperados Waiting for a Train” helped launch his career and were covered by numerous performers.

Clark had been a mentor to such other singers as Steve Earle and Rodney Crowell. He organized Earle’s first job as a writer in Nashville. In the 1970s, the Clarks’ home in Nashville was an open house for songwriters and musicians, including Townes Van Zandt and Jerry Jeff Walker.

Clark was married to songwriter and artist Susanna Clark from 1972 until her death from cancer on June 27, 2012.

On May 17, 2016, Clark died in Nashville following a lengthy battle with lymphoma. He was 74.

Steve Earle released the tribute album “Guy” in 2019.
