DISCOGRAPHY > ARTIST

early publicity photo

While Jack Clement has for the most part been a behind-the-scenes kind of guy, he has had his share of the limelight and released a few discs over the years as an artist. In 1978, after 25 years in the music business, he released his first album All I Want To Do In Life which won Country Music Magazine's Album of the Year. In 2003, he contributed a duet performance with Pam Tillis to the acclaimed Waylon Jennings tribute, Lonesome, On'ry, and Mean on the Dualtone label, which brought about, in the following year, the release of Cowboy's second album, Guess Things Happen That Way. Two of the four critics at CMT.com, Craig Shelburne and Calvin Gilbert, picked it as one of the Ten Best Country Albums of 2004

In addition, Jack has lent his instrumental talents to a number of notable recordings, from playing bass on rockabilly sides for Sun Records to the "Ring of Fire" session for Johnny Cash where he played rhythm guitar and came up with the signature lick (he taught it to the horn players by humming it) to the 2005 Grammy-winning Beautiful Dreamer: Songs of Stephen Foster where he played dobro on John Prine's cut.

Pineapple Jack also picks a mean ukelele see the video.
