Brandy Clark has become one of the most highly-respected singer-songwriters in contemporary country music on the strength of her neo-traditional slant and impressive voice.

She released her self-titled debut EP in 2012, following up with her debut album, ’12 Stories,’ in 2013. The album is one of the most critically acclaimed in recent years, with critics singling out her dark, observational humor for approval. The CMA winner is also a Grammy nominee.
