Clinton Jackson talks about the decision to go by "Clinton" instead of "Clint." (3:34)

AND, AH--

CLINTON PAIGE JACKSON,

ACTUALLY.

I DON'T KNOW WHY I GOT A

GIRL'S MIDDLE NAME.

I JUST DO.

USUALLY GUYS NAMED CLINTON GO

WITH CLINT, RIGHT?

CLINT BACK.

CLINT EASTWOOD.

I PREFER CLINTON MYSELF.

I WAS OPENING A SHOW FOR

HUEY LEWIS ONCE, RIGHT, WE GET

TO THIS VENUE.

THE LAST BIG ACT THAT WAS THERE

BEFORE THE HUEY LEWIS SHOW WAS

CLINT BLACK.

WE GET DOWNSTAIRS TO THE

DRESSING ROOM.

SURE ENOUGH ON ONE OF THE

DRESSING ROOM DOORS THERE WAS

A SIGN THAT SAYS,

"CLINT BLACK."

AND I'M THINKING--

[LAUGHTER]

IS THAT MY NAME AND A BRIEF

DESCRIPTION?

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

I HAD TO GO TO HUEY'S ROOM

AND SEE IF IT SAID, "HUEY,

WHITE."

[LAUGHTER]

WOW.

I'M HAVING A GREAT DAY.

I WENT OUT TO BREAKFAST.

ORDERED THE LARGE ORANGE JUICE.

YOU GOTTA GET THE LARGE ONE,

RIGHT, 'CAUSE EVEN A LARGE ONE

IS ONLY THIS BIG.

[LAUGHTER]

YOU GET THE SMALL THE WAITRESS

WILL JUST COME BY WITH SOME

JUICE.

[LAUGHTER]

YOU BETTER BE READY.

AH-HA.

[LAUGHTER]

"OH, THAT'S FRESH.

THAT IS GOOD."

THEY GIVE IT TO YOU WITH THE

PULP IN IT.

YOU LIKE YOUR PULP IN YOUR

ORANGE JUICE?

I DON'T LIKE THAT.

YEAH, YEAH, I DON'T--

THEY ALWAYS TELL YOU, "HEY, IT'S

JUST LIKE EATING AN ORANGE."

"HEY, IT'S JUST LIKE DRINKING

A GLASS OF SEA MONKEYS.

I DON'T WANT THAT."

[LAUGHTER]

RIGHT?

THEY TELL YOU IT'S HOME STYLE.

WELL, HOME STYLE ORANGE JUICE

TO ME IS TANG.

[APPLAUSE]

THAT'S THE HOME I GREW UP IN.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

AND WHEN THE PITCHER GOT

HALFWAY EMPTY AND MY MOTHER

WOULD JUST FILL IT BACK UP

WITH WATER, TANG LIGHT.

[LAUGHTER]

YEAH, YOU GOT MAMAS, TOO.

MY MOTHER USED TO TELL US,

"WE GOTTA SHARE WHAT COMES IN

THIS HOUSE.

WE FAMILY.

THAT'S HOW WE LOVE EACH OTHER.

WE SHARE."

I REMEMBER ONCE ME AND MY

SISTER HAD TO SHARE A PAIR OF

SKATES.

[LAUGHTER]

NOT A LOT OF LOVE HAPPENING

RIGHT THERE.

NOT WHEN YOU GOTTA BE OUTSIDE

ALL DAY GOING--

[LAUGHTER]

[APPLAUSE]

GOING DOWN A HILL.

ONLY THING I NEVER SHARED WAS

MY DR. SEUSS BOOKS.

OOH, I WOULD NOT, COULD NOT

SHARE MY SEUSS.

[LAUGHTER]

MY SISTER HATED ME FOR THAT,

ALRIGHT?

WE GOT TO BE GROWN FOLKS AND

SHE WAS STILL UPSET.

YOU KNOW HOW I FOUND OUT

DR. SEUSS DIED?

MY SISTER CALLED ME UP.

"CLINT, GUESS WHAT?

SEUSS IS DEAD.

[LAUGHTER]

DEAD, I SAID."

[LAUGHTER CONTINUES]

SHE CALLED ME BACK, "DOWN IN THE

GROUND WITH DIRT ON HIS HEAD.

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]

GET OVER IT."

I COME HOME, CHECK THE MACHINE.

"BOOP, DOC'S IN A BOX.

BOOP."

[LAUGHTER]
