Brandy Clark Brings “Big Day” to NPR’s Mountain Stage, December 2nd

Nashville, Tenn. – “Clark's words are worth a thousand pictures,” proclaimed NPR’s Otis Hart after the critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter released her sophomore album this summer, which landed on multiple critics’ “Best Of” lists including Rolling Stone, TIME, American Songwriter and NPR

Since the release, the four-time GRAMMY nominee and CMA Award winner Brandy Clark wrapped a widely lauded acoustic tour, re-released her GRAMMY-nominated hit “Hold My Hand” with legendary Dwight Yoakam, and accepted the inaugural “Impact Award” at CMT’s Next Women of Country last month. Now, Clark brings her stripped performance of songs from Big Day In A Small Town to NPR’s renowned Mountain Stage, the home of live music on public radio. The show will broadcast to 180 NPR stations beginning Friday, December 2. Airtimes and stations can be found here.

"So many of my favorite artists have been a part of Mountain Stage," says the woman Salon Magazine calls "the Raymond Carver of the Hot Country charts." "Having the opportunity to be a part of it is pretty surreal for me."

Mountain Stage has featured performances from music legends as well as emerging stars from all genres for more than 30 years. Recorded in front of a live audience, Clark’s performance took place at premiere concert venue Culture Center Theater in Charleston, West Virginia in late October.
