SOMEDAYS THE SONG WRITES YOU, country elder Guy Clark's 11th studio album, is a crafted collection of compositions that rank among some of his best. Clark's tobacco and whiskey-stained voice has never sounded better than it does on such tracks as "The Guitar," a fiery number about a wayward musician and the pawnshop guitar that causes an unexpected awakening in him, and "Hollywood," a slow-grooving cut that takes a sideways look at the world-famous district of Los Angeles, California. SOMEDAYS THE SONG WRITES YOU is another choice album from one of the greatest songwriters to ever come out of the state of Texas.
