Ashley Clark has worn a wide variety of musical hats over the course of the past few years. For starters, he toured as the fiddle player for Carrie Underwood and was known for the heart and soul he poured into a killer fiddle solo at the end of Wasted. He left the touring gig to go form a band, The Clark Brothers, that was crowned winner of FOX’s The Next Great American Band. After a short rebranding, he and the band later recorded an album as ‘Sons of Sylvia.’ Now, he’s adding ‘solo country artist’ to his impressive list of musical endeavors, as he signed on with I.R.S. Nashville earlier this week.
Along with that announcement, Clark released his debut single, Greyhound, a song that expresses the strong sense of urgency experienced when wanting to be reunited with a loved one. He sings, “I need to get on an airplane, fast train, greyhound, leave town, quit work, right now, somehow get to you, that’s what I want to do.” Clark’s sweet message should stand out in the radio world as a contrast to the bro-country themes currently dominating the airwaves.
