Description

The Nashville, Tennessee based Clark received her first of an impressive six career GRAMMY nominations in 2013 in the Best Country Song category for co-writing the Miranda Lambert No. 1 hit "Mama's Broken Heart." Her talent as a storyteller has quickly propelled her into critical acclaim as one of Nashville's best tunesmiths. Subsequently writing songs for Sheryl Crow, The Band Perry, Reba McEntire, LeAnn Rimes, Billy Currington, Darius Rucker, and Kacey Musgraves to name a few.

In 2013, Brandy independently released her own debut album, 12 Stories, which was embraced by music lovers and critics alike and was subsequently nominated for two GRAMMYs, including Best New Artist and Best Country Album. 12 Stories went on to be named "Best Album of 2013" by The Boston Globe, New York Magazine, NPR, The New York Post, and more. Brandy also won the 2014 CMA Song of the Year Award for "Follow Your Arrow," which she co-wrote with Shane McAnally and Kacey Musgraves, and was also nominated for a CMA New Artist Of The Year that same year.

2016 brought the release of her sophomore album, Big Day In A Small Town, which also garnered two GRAMMY nominations for Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance ("Love Can Go To Hell") and once again topped critics' "Best of " lists including NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, among others thus cementing Clark as one of country music's most talented artists, beloved by fans, critics, and fellow entertainers alike. Famed music critic and author, Ann Powers, calls Clark "a storyteller of the highest caliber."

This past year Clark has been honing her craft on the road playing with the likes of Willie Nelson, Brandi Carlile, Dwight Yoakam and Sugarland.

When introducing new music or a new artist, it’s human nature to compare them to an established artist who may be more familiar. “He sounds like” or “she reminds me of” are typical phrases we hear. But with Alex Hall, it’s pretty difficult to make a comparison. The Gainesville, Georgia native is a blend of such a diverse array of musical influences that he has created his own hybrid sound that can only be compared to…Alex Hall.

After picking up an acoustic guitar at the age of 14, Alex quickly set to work learning every Elvis Presley song on the King’s ELV1S: 30 No. 1 Hits album – his raw talent earning him his first singing gig at a local restaurant when he was still in middle school. While singing week nights at the restaurant and preforming local shows, Alex captured the attention of a Nashville booking agent, which resulted in about 125 shows a year throughout high school…a feat for any artist, let alone someone still receiving a report card…and a valuable introduction into the country music community. Drawing influence from artists like his hero, Elvis, Keith Urban and Eric Church, along with bona fide rockers like Bruce Springsteen, and John Mayer, Alex has found a way to combine these sounds into his own atomic musical style.

Alex just signed a contract with Sony’s Monument Records and is currently in the studio recording his first album with multi-Grammy winner Shane McAnally, Pete Good and AJ Babcock producing.
