Shel Silverstein, as a writer, poet, and songwriter has influenced generations upon generations of kids (and kids at heart) with his brilliant, witty, and touching turns of
phrase. It is Silverstein's oft-overlooked catalog of classic songs that is the focus of this new all-star
tribute. As a songwriter, Silverstein penned indelible songs for artists such as Johnny Cash, Dr. Hook, Loretta Lynn, Bobby Bare, and countless others. On this collection, lovingly produced by Bobby Bare Sr. and Bobby Bare Jr., two distinct generations of artists inspired by Silverstein have lined up to pay tribute. From Kris Kristofferson, Ray Price, and John Prine to Andrew Bird,
My Morning Jacket, and Dr. Dog, Twistable, Turnable Man: A Musical Tribute to the Songs of Shel Silverstein
is an eclectic, endearing valentine to this giant of American song.
