Dustin James Clark
Dustin James Clark is a singer/songwriter from the Jefferson County, MO area. Dustin Clark is the nephew of songwriter Earl Clark. Earl Clark notably penned songs for George Strait, Willie Nelson, Tanya Tucker and Tim McGraw, among others. He also saw success writing songs for Tracy Lawrence in the early 1990s. Lawrence's “Can’t Break It to My Heart” and “Renegades, Rebels and Rogues” were early career achievements for Clark, too, hitting No. 1 and No. 7, respectively, on the country charts. An early cut was "What She Left Behind," which appeared on McGraw's self-titled debut in 1993. He also wrote "One Step at a Time," which Strait cut.
He has been playing locally and traveling shows for 10+years & is honored to share his musical talents throughout the area. In 2013 Dustin had the honor to perform in front of Blake Shelton, Usher, Adam Levine, & Shakira during his audition for "The Voice" Season 6. Looking to the future Dustin is always open to find new and exciting cities where he can share his musical talent.
In 2017 Dustin had the privileged to play at the one of the Largest Country Music festivals in the US, Tumbleweed located in Kansas City, Mo.
In 2018 Dustin is excited to hit the road for his Honky Tonk Highway tour. 5 states are currently on the map for stops more coming soon!
Dustin takes great pride in the songs he has written. Some of those songs reflecting on the events surrounding a solider being brought home and a hometown hero returning from war. Much of his inspiration for songwriting come from his personal life experiences or stories from our veterans. He enjoys telling their stories through song.
In his free time, Dustin enjoys writing new songs, hunting, horseback riding, and spending time outdoors with his wife and dogs.
