Brandy Clark: CMT Next Women of Country Live Exclusive

Four-Time Grammy Nominee Gets Real With “Broke”

If you’ve lately been longing and searching for truth and meaning behind music, then look no further than Brandy Clark.

After multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM award nominations, the world got better acquainted with the girl formerly known as Nashville’s best-kept secret. But, hallelujah, it’s a secret no more.

Known for her lyrical prowess and warm, emotive voice, the Washington state native has a way of getting right to the heart of the matter with raw honesty, dark humor and plenty of heartache and pain.

Any subject matter is fair game: divorce, drinking, cheating, poverty and loss, to name a few. Clark’s music feels like an old friend who knows all your secrets, doings and undoings. It’s comforting, yet uncomfortable when necessary and always very complex even when it seems simple. But that’s real life – the muse that inspires her.

She’s a storyteller in the truest sense. Her songs hit home and hit hard. Whether they resonate with your own experiences or a friend’s, Clark is telling all of our stories, giving a voice to everyone. Take a listen to her exclusive performance of “Broke” from the album Big Day in a Small Town for CMT Next Women of Country Live.
