Blast from The Past: Blue Clear Sky

Around this time in 1996, George’s Strait’s “Blue Clear Sky” was the number one song in country music. The song title is a bit odd in that the saying is backwards from how we’re use to saying it. Bob DiPiero was one of the song writers and ended up pulling this phrase directly from the movie Forrest Gump. He knew it was the incorrect way to phrase it but he liked the way it sounded in the movie and how it would sound in a song.
