Here’s another musical collaboration that we couldn’t fit into the show: Darrell Scott, accompanied by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, singing “The Year That Clayton Delaney Died.”
The Tom T. Hall song is actually about a man that Tom knew named Lonnie Easterly, who lived on Clayton Hill next to a family called the Delaneys. As Tom says, “I kept everything on that hill, there in his neighborhood, to keep from losing that reality.”
Tomorrow: Darrell Scott remembers his father Wayne, who died earlier this year in a car accident. We also replay an interview from 2006, featuring both Darrell and Wayne.
