Famed singer songwriter Guy Clark dies, Connie Britton discusses 'Nashville' cancellation and Keith Urban sets a record.
FOX's Michelle Pollino has "FOX Country":
I'm Michelle Pollino.
Singer/songwriter Guy Clark who had the hits 'L.A. Freeway' and 'Desperados Waiting for a Train,' died at the age of 74 after a lengthy illness...
Clark recorded over 20 albums and was covered by many artists including: Jimmy Buffett, Lyle Lovett, Ricky Skaggs, Johnny Cash and Vince Gill. In 2012 he received the Poet's Award from the Academy of Country Music and he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2004.
I don't know about you, but I'm heartbroken about the cancellation of Nashville. Connie Britton stopped by NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyer and talked about it:
(Britton) "It's bittersweet, look I always feel like to have four years on anything, you can never take that for granted and I talked to my Nashville friends and they are all devastated and it's really a bummer, also for the town too."
And Keith Urban's latest 'Ripcord' debuted at number one in three countries the U.S., Canada and Australia, setting a record as this feat has not been accomplished by any other male country artist.
