The Texas Legends Series - Volume Five: Guy Clark, Blaze Foley, and Kimmie Rhodes

 It's time for another Texas Legends series compilation, though this one's a bit more downbeat than the other ones (check them out here).  If you're looking to do a deeper dive, I would start with Blaze Foley's Live at the Austin Outhouse, Guy Clark's Dublin Blues, and Kimmie Rhodes' West Texas Heaven.   You can also check out Blaze and Kimmie cuts on my 90's Texas alternative country compilation.  Lastly, I also recommend the Blaze Foley biopic Blaze, which is currently available on Netflix. In addition to Ben Dickey and Alia Shawkat as Blaze and his girlfriend Sybil, I really liked Charlie Sexton's portrayal of Townes Van Zandt.
