The Oxford American is proud to announce the release of our 16th annual Southern Music Issue, honoring the musical history of TEXAS. The cover features a stunning portrait of Guy and Susanna Clark taken in 1975 by iconic Nashville photographer Jim McGuire.

Guy Clark’s song “My Favorite Picture of You,” the title track from his Grammy-winning 2013 album, written for his wife after her death in 2012, is a highlight of the CD.

The magazine and accompanying CD compilation also feature Bob Wills, Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin, Ornette Coleman, Billy Joe Shaver, DJ Screw, Willie Nelson, Barbara Lynn, Johnny Winter, and many, many more Texas icons.
