Gary Clark Jr.'s THIS LAND Enters Billboard Top 200 Charts At #6
Gary Clark Jr.'s universally acclaimed new album THIS LAND (Warner Bros. Records) has entered the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at the #6 position and marks his third consecutive album to enter into the Top 10.
During the albums week of release, the Grammy award-winning Clark triumphed with impressive, headline-grabbing appearances on television, radio, podcasts and more that included Saturday Night Live,("Pearl Cadillac" & "This Land"), The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon ("What About Us"), The Daily Show with Trevor Noah ("This Land" & interview), The Howard Stern Show ( "Come Together," "This Land" & interview), and podcast WTF with Marc Maron.
Jon Pareles of The New York Times had this to say about THIS LAND: "In 2019, Clark is an exceedingly rare figure, who has a major-label recording contract and a worldwide audience, one he has built by tearing up stage after stage, show after show. On THIS LAND, his third major-label studio album, his songwriting has caught up with his playing. It has something to do with experience; and it has a lot to do with America in 2019, where division, frustration and seething anger can use an outlet with the historical resonance and emotional depth of the blues."
Forbes proclaimed: "SNL To 2020's Grammys, Gary Clark Jr. is poised for a monster 2019. This Land, a stunning album, unites his acclaimed playing with the singing and songwriting into one masterpiece album. I'm predicting here and now this album will get some serious Grammy love in 2020, completing a year that will finally show the mainstream Gary Clark Jr. is a rock star! "
