Clint Black is such a maniac—he’s probably the only person on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to get a Monty Python song out on a major label (except for possibly actual members of Monty Python, if any of them even got a star on the Walk of Fame in the first place). But good for Clint for left-turning his generally reverent Neo-Bakersfield country sound—clean, clear, tough and poignant like Buck and Merle—toward something like that. For a guy who’s sold tens of millions of records, he seems like he sticks to his guns and his ideas, whether its building a career on songs he wrote himself or hitting pause on the stardom thing to raise a kid. Or for dueting with Eric Idle on “The Galaxy Song.” We suggest covering Roky Erickson next (“Clear Night For Love”) and blow any remaining minds.
