Clark, Worsham team up for tour

Saturday, February 11, 2017 – Brandy Clark and Charlie Worsham will join for more than 20 tour dates this spring.

The tour hits the road together beginning on April 6 in Charlottesville, Va. with stops in Washington, D.C., Austin and Nashville.

Clark, who has gained much acclaim as a songwriter, made her major label debut last year with "Big Day in a Small Town," while Worsham will release his sophomore effort, "Beginning of Things," later this year.

"Worsham is one of my favorite singers, songwriters and musicians. I absolutely love his new record and where his heart is musically," said Clark. "I can't wait to share the stage with him."

"Brandy is everything I love about country music. She speaks her truth, and she breaks new ground with every song she writes," said Worsham, a Mississippi native. "She's beloved by the Nashville community, and each time she and I have collaborated, it's been a blast. This tour is going to be so much fun, and I know the fans who fill up the venue each night will bring with them the same deep love for music that we have as artists."

Big Day in a Small Town CD review - Big Day in a Small Town
There are two components to Brandy Clark. First is her songwriting, which gained her much street cred, penning songs for the likes of Miranda Lambert ("Mama's Broken Heart" with Kacey Musgraves and Shane McAnally), The Band Perry ("Better Dig Two"), Keith Urban, Reba McEntire and a slew for Musgraves and Jennifer Nettles.

Rubberband CD review - Rubberband
Newcomer Charlie Worsham doesn't sound so new once the music starts. In fact, Keith Urban serves as a ready made launching pad for the Mississippi native. Worsham sounds remarkably like the Aussie vocally on the lead-off and very catchy Could It Be, the first single.
