Taste of Country is featuring Clay Cook and the influence that Zac Brown and John Mayer had on the songwriting for his new album North Star.

"John, of course, is famed pop-rock icon John Mayer. That song is now the title track of Cook’s latest album, because Mayer never included it on one of his own (the two wrote several others that have become hits). Their friendship, forged over pouring their hearts into song, is strong-ish. Cook says his current bandleader, Zac Brown, and Brown’s regular songwriting partner Wyatt Durrette were more influential. In fact, Durette was the first person the talented musician and high harmony singer for the Zac Brown Band wrote with after Mayer."
