Gary Clark Jr. – “Take Me Down” song from ‘Deepwater Horizon’ soundtrack

Critics and fans are crazed about Gary Clark, Jr.’s ‘Take Me Down’, a death-inspired song off Steve Jablonsky’s Deepwater Horizon Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’, an album to Peter Berg’s ‘Deepwater Horizon’, a film based on the true events that occurred on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010.

When Gary Clark Jr. sings, people listen because his soulful voice captures the heart-pounding moment of any emotional situation.

“The moment it showed the eleven employees that passed away from Deepwater Horizon, I couldn’t hold back the tears that were building up. The harmonica made it harder for me.” – A YouTube commenter


“When this train rolls down the track, I’m not coming back. Gotta one way ticket, I’m going home, back where I started from. Oh, take me down south when you take me home, Lord.” – Gary Clark Jr. lyrics

FUN FACT: Gary Clark, Jr. first picked up a guitar at the age of 12, and he spent his teens playing whatever gig he could get in the Austin area. In 2010, he was selected by Eric Clapton to perform at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, and a DVD of the show featuring Clark led to a recording deal with Warner Bros.
