Honesty always attracts a crowd,” and it’s proven to be a potent tool for Nashville based North Carolinian Casey Clark. A firm believer in the power of a well crafted tune, Clark’s work as a songwriter and road dog have won him respect from industry icons and classic country fans alike. Clark is on a relentless journey to capture the people and scenery of rural America one last time before they cease to exist.
Showcasing these stories is a 5 song EP with Grammy award winning engineer Matt Ross
Spang (Jason Isbell, Drive By Truckers, Margo Price). From steel stomping robbery song
“Train,” inspired by the Outlaw Jesse James; to hard working beer cave anthem “Get my ChairOut,” Clark continues to sing his unfiltered southern truth. Trust me, your ears are better for it!
