John Mayer and Zac Brown Helped Clay Cook Find His ‘North Star’

Writing for Clay Cook's new album 'North Star' began over a decade ago. Actually, it was exactly 15 years ago at the Berklee College of Music. The Atlanta native wasn't used to Boston's cold winters, the fast-paced life or everything else a college freshman goes through 1,000 miles away from home. He started to pen the title track, but wouldn't finish it for a few years, until a friend named John moved with him from Berklee to Atlanta.
