Featured Artist: Brandy Clark

It is so refreshing to have an artist like Brandy Clark coming up through the industry. Even though she has been around for a while writing hits for The Band Perry and Miranda Lambert, Brandy is finally sharing her beautiful voice as an artist. Her new single that has hit Sirius XM, "Hungover," is like breath of fresh air.

Forgive me but I am tired of hearing the same stories in songs on the radio. It seems like every time you turn on country radio is always about summertime, cold beer, and southern bells. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's nice to hear about the 'hard times' and the parts of life that's not a party. Brandy Clark brings traditional country music back with a modern influence.

Brandy is now on the "That Girl Tour" with Jennifer Nettles and her performance is just like her music, organic and straight to the point. I've had the pleasure of seeing Brandy twice on the tour, and both nights she catches the crowd with her amazing story telling. She is definitely an act you'd want to catch.

I hope Brandy is the beginning of country music making a U-turn back to it's roots. Her music is raw and authentic. Give "Hangover" a listen and don't forget to request it to your local country radio station.
