WATCH: W.B. Givens, 'Dublin Blues'

Artist: W.B. Givens featuring Mayeux & Broussard
Hometown: Nashville, TN
Song: "Dublin Blues" (by Guy Clark)

In their Words: "On May 17, 2016, the world lost one of the few remaining legends from the folk and country songwriting collective who arose out of Texas and Tennessee in the 1970s. I was in Brooklyn heading to Austin when I learned that ol' Guy had left us, and I knew immediately that a tribute was in order. On the drive down to Texas, I got on the phone with Zoob, the owner of the Texas Chili Parlor, and enlisted the help of Mayeux & Broussard for this tribute covering 'Dublin Blues.' The song mentions a 'Mad Dog Margarita,' which Zoob said didn't even exist before Guy wrote the tune. Guy Clark was one of the greatest storytellers and songwriters that ever lived, and his music survives to influence aspiring songsters for years to come." — W.B. Givens
