Gary started playing guitar at the young age of twelve; initially he played small gigs during his teen years.

Jimmy and many others in the music community of Austin helped Clark along his musical journey and ultimately facilitated his rise in the rock and roll scene of Texas. He received much deserved acknowledgment and acclaim from his peers due to his fantastic live performances and in 2001 the Mayor of Austin even went out and declared May 3rd as "Gary Clark Jr. Day".
