Growing up in small town, Covington, Ohio, Clark Manson wanted nothing more than to become not only a country singer, but a songwriter as well. Manson discovered his love for music at the young age of three, reciting every word to “Achy Break Heart,” and dreaming of one day filling the boots of country legend, George Straight.
Manson moved to Fairborn, Ohio, where he attempted to overlook his musical purpose and attended Wright State University. Soon after, it was evident that being a country artist was a dream he just wouldn’t walk away from. Packing the bars of several Universities, 23-year-old, Clark Manson decided his passion for the music industry couldn’t be broken.
In the summer of 2013, Clark Manson became officially sponsored by Jagermeister USA. He released his first debut album in November 2013, Running with the Night, which quickly climbed the iTunes charts, peaking at number thirty on the day of its release. Running with the Night, also checked in at number five on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart in November 2013, and has received much recognition all around the world by some of Manson’s thirty-three thousand Twitter followers and fans. Since the album release, Manson has swamped the ticket-booths, selling out a number of shows and quickly becoming a notable country vision in states ranging from Wisconsin, all the way to Texas.
While in between many late night shows and road tours, Manson heads to Nashville as he undertakes a new summer EP, which will be released this June. “I've learned early on that persistence and hard work will get you a long way in life," said Clark. "Everyday I strive to be a better person, artist and business man." With much talent and a fierce determination, Manson continues his quest to the top. Scheduled to appear with some of Nashville’s finest in summer of 2014, as well as headlining multiple festivals, it is hard telling where this incredibly talented, up and coming country artist will be next.
