If you love country music in the Lone Star tradition and haven’t yet listened to a William Clark Green album, it’s time to treat yourself to some real music discovery. Here’s what you need to know about this alternately soul-searching and good-times Texas country music singer.
Green’s Path to the Texas Singer/Songwriter Tradition
William Clark Green hails from Flint, Texas. At age 12, he began taking guitar lessons. As he toiled through a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture Economics at Texas Tech University, he spent as much time giving local performances as he did studying. In 2008, he released his debut album, Dangerous Man. Since then, he has released a total of 8 full-length albums (including the 2022 album Baker Hotel) and has become a staple in the Texas country music scene.
Green’s music often showcases his Texas roots, with lyrics that touch on themes of small-town life, love, and heartbreak. He has a traditional country sound, heavily influenced by artists like Willis Alan Ramsey, Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Pat Green (unrelated).
Green Pastures: Music Successes
Green has had multiple singles appear on the Texas Music Chart, including “She Likes the Beatles,” “Hanging Around,” “Sympathy,” and “Sticks.” He also had a hit with “Ringling Road” and “It’s About Time” from the same album. Ringling Road was the first in Green’s discography to hit number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
Green has also had the opportunity to tour with several big names in the industry, including Pat Green, Cody Johnson, and Wade Bowen. He has been a regular at several of the biggest music festivals in Texas, including the Texas Independence Fest, the Larry Joe Taylor Music Festival, and the Red Dirt BBQ & Music Festival.
Green’s music and style have earned him a dedicated fan base and the respect of his peers in the industry. He continues to tour and release new music, cementing his place as a leading voice in the Texas country music scene.
In addition to his successful music career, Green is also known for his philanthropic efforts. He founded the High Cotton Relief Fund, which raises money for West Texas cotton farmers in need.
