Dan Auerbach, Kris Kristofferson Set For “Cowboy” Jack Clement Tribute In Nashville

Videos by American Songwriter

Memphis-born singer/songwriter/producer “Cowboy” Jack Clement made his mark on the music industry working with legendary performers like Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.

So it’s no surprise that when 81-year-old Clement’s house and studio burned down in 2011, more than a few musicians were concerned.

One of those musicians was Artist Growth founder Matt Urmy, who Clement recently produced.

Artist Growth joined up with Dub Cornett, a long time protege of Clement’s, to put together Honoring A Legend: A Tribute To “Cowboy” Jack Clement, featuring an all-star list of artists influenced by and associated with Clement.

John Prine, Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys, Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, John C. Reilly and more will gather at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville  January 30 to pay tribute to “The Pied Piper of Music City.”

All proceeds for the concert will go toward The Music Health Alliance and launching the “Cowboy” Jack Clement Fund to help the cost of medical bills for musicians not covered by insurance.
