One of the most daunting things for an artist to do is follow up a monster. Especially when it reaches the level of success, both critically and commercially, as William Clark Green's "Rose Queen."

Thank the good Lord Will ain't scared of monsters.

Following Green's debut "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 to be Green's third studio album "Ringling Road" will be unleashed on April 22. And that album already has a No. 1 single, "Sympathy," which spent two weeks on top earlier this year.

So by my tally that makes three No. 1 singles, five total top 10s, and of course the best song in Texas for 2013. Not too shabby for the relative newcomer.

To celebrate the album release in East Texas, Will will join me at Cowboy's nightclub on Wednesday April 22 for an acoustic album release party. Come hang out, hear great music, and get your hands on a physical copy of "Ringling Road."
