(AP) – "Cowboy" Jack Clement, a producer, engineer, songwriter and 
beloved figure who helped birth rock ‘n’ roll and push country music
into modern times, has died. He was 82.

Close friend Dub Cornett says Clement’s hospice nurse confirmed
that Clement died Thursday morning. He passed away just months
after learning he would be joining the Country Music Hall of Fame,
a fitting tip of the cowboy hat to the man whose personal story is
entwined with the roots of rock ‘n’ roll like few others. He was to
be inducted at a ceremony later this fall.

Clement’s career included stops in Memphis at Sun Records,
where he discovered Jerry Lee Lewis, and Nashville, where he
was a close collaborator of Johnny Cash, Charley Pride and
fellow 2013 inductee Bobby Bare.
