Guitar Slingers with Jack Barksdale | Episode 7 | Verlon Thompson

Verlon Thompson is one of my all time guitar heroes and one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He's been writing songs and performing for over thirty years as a solo performer, and as the trusted sidekick of Guy Clark. Along the way Verlon Thompson compositions have been recorded by Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Anne Murray, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Del McCoury, Sam Bush, Trisha Yearwood and many more. His guitar can be heard on recordings by Restless Heart, Pam Tillis, and many more, including, and especially Guy Clark. Verlon even co-produced Guy Clark's Grammy nominated cd "Cold Dog Soup" as well as "The Dark", "Workbench Songs" and "Somedays the Song Writes You". We had such a good time at Poor David's Pub in Dallas filming this Episode of Guitar Slingers.
