Jeff Bridges' Bad Blake was a conglomerate of a bunch of off the beaten path country singers. Most have said that Blaze Foley was the biggest influence thanks to his friendship with T-Bone Burnett. I had heard of Blaze on the periphery of stories about Guy Clark, Townes and the rest of that Texas crew. Never released an album. Glad that movie came out.
Blaze was also the inspiration for Lucinda's best fucking song
