Musical Montage: T.G. Sheppard and Clint Eastwood “Make My Day”

Not only was the 1984 song “Make My Day” by country legend T.G. Sheppard inspired by Dirty Harry but the man himself, Clint Eastwood, provided guest vocals.  Coming off Sheppard’s album Slow Burn, “Make My Day” was about Harry Callahan. The lyrics describe various situations where Dirty Harry must arrive with his trademark .44 Magnum and take care of business.  Eastwood doesn’t really sing on the song, instead coming in to provide his catchphrase when needed.  The song reached #12 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks in 1984 and #62 on the Hot 100.  The song was written by Dewayne Blackwell, who later wrote a massive hit for Garth Brooks in the 90s with “Friends in Low Places”.  There’s no music video but you can listen to the song below.
