The Return of William Clark Green
Back in May, William Clark Green brought down Cowboy's nightclub with an intimate acoustic show for the album release of "Ringling Road." Yes, he brought down the place with an acoustic show. Friday (Aug 21) Green is back, only this time he's bringin' the whole band.
Following Green’s “Misunderstood,” an album that galvanized Green’s core fan base, “Rose Queen” became a true breakout project for the East Texas native.
With it Green got his first taste of radio success (“It’s About Time” Top 10, “She Likes The Beatles” No. 1, “Rose Queen” No. 4, and “Hanging Around” No. 1), not to mention one of the coolest album covers of 2013.
In addition Green earned high praise from the Dallas Observer, the newspaper that named “She Likes the Beatles” the best song in Texas that year.
The monster that is Green’s third studio album “Ringling Road” was unleashed on April 22. That album already has a No. 1 single, “Sympathy,” which spent two weeks on top earlier this year. And "Sticks and Stones," his most recent single peaked this summer inside the Top 5 in Texas.
Oh, yeah, and just this month Rolling Stone included WCG's latest album on it's list of "Top 35 Country Albums of 2015 That You Probably Didn't Hear."
So by my tally that makes three No. 1 singles, six total top 10s, the best song in Texas for 2013, and high praise from Rolling Stone. Not too shabby of a resume for a relative new-comer.
We'll see y'all Friday at Cowboy's. Tickets on sale here.
