Clement to Anchor Concert Series

Visionary songwriter-producer “Cowboy” Jack Clement, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s 2003 artist in residence, will headline four consecutive Monday night concerts in the museum’s Ford Theater. Launching Oct. 6, the two-hour shows will feature guest vocalists and musicians performing music ranging from country classics to sambas. The guests will be backed by Cowboy’s Ragtime Band, an all-star group of noted session musicians. Vince Gill has referred to Clement as “the first cool guy to move to Nashville.” As a songwriter, his credits include Johnny Cash’s “Ballad of a Teenage Queen.” In addition to producing albums for Cash, Waylon Jennings, Louis Armstrong, Charley Pride, Townes Van Zandt and others, Clement produced three tracks on U2’s Rattle and Hum album. 09/22/03
