Looking back, my love for music began with shy intentions. In my junior year of high school, I picked up the guitar, along side of my brother, and began to play. Little did I know, a few years later, I would be struck with compassion by mainstream media to put my thoughts and feelings on paper. This progressed over the course of one night into the first song I ever wrote called Gonna Love You. It was at that point that I recognized my passion for song writing, as I was expressing my love for my high school sweetheart, who I am now honored to call my wife.
Over the years, I have written many songs. A few of them are found on my 2009 album titled Somewhere In Mississippi, and a larger selection will be released on my upcoming album that will be titled Ready When You Are. The ironic thing is that the first song I ever wrote back in 2005, Gonna Love You, will be debuted 10 years after writing it on my Ready When You Are album that will be released in January 2015. This album will also contain original Travis Clark songs that my two amazing children, Ava and Knox, inspired me to write as well as additional songs in which my friends, family members, fans and multiple life experiences have inspired me to write.
The first show that I played was in May 2009, in which I opened for Sammy Kershaw. From there, I have been blessed to play with outstanding artist such as Jason Aldean, Randy Travis, Frank Foster, Jeff Bates, Joe Diffie, Craig Morgan and Jake Owen. Most recently, I was selected to play at a music festival on the same stage as national artist like Alabama, Brantley Gilbert, Blackberry Smoke and Kid Rock.
The good Lord has blessed me tremendously through my friends, family, fans, talent, and the list goes on. For that, I will be forever thankful...
