ABOUT THE ARTIST
An eight-time GRAMMY nominee and a CMA Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician, Brandy Clark is in the midst of a breakthrough year following the release of her Grammy-nominated album Your Life is a Record. Produced by award-winning producer Jay Joyce, the album was created after the dissolution of a long-term relationship and features Clark’s most personal songwriting to date. The widely-acclaimed record landed on several “Best of 2020” lists including NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Variety and Slate, who declares Clark, “one of the greatest living short-story-songwriters in country (which really means in any genre)…I don’t think there’s a 2020 country or country-adjacent album that outdoes Clark’s.” The New Yorker declares, “No one is writing better country songs than Brandy Clark is…Your Life is a Record is the best-sounding album that she’s released,” while Variety proclaims, “one of the very best singer-songwriters contemporary country has.” The hitmaker also recently released a special deluxe edition of Your Life is a Record in honor of the album’s one-year anniversary, which features six new songs including the stunner “Remember Me Beautiful,” and collaborations with Brandi Carlile, Lindsey Buckingham and Randy Newman.
Continuing her triumphant year, Clark was nominated for Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance at the 63rd Grammy Awards and Outstanding Music Artist at the 2021 GLAAD Media Awards. Clark adds another accolade to her shelf with her ACL debut.
In addition to her work as a solo artist, Clark is also one of her generation’s most respected and celebrated songwriters and musicians, having written hit songs for acclaimed artists including Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban and many others.
