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. And then there's her own artistic career with her major label debut finally coming close to three years after her extremely well-received (with »»»
12 Stories CD review - 12 Stories
Songwriter Brandy Clark moved to Nashville from Washington more than 15 years ago, penning songs recorded by The Band Perry (Better Dig Two), Miranda Lambert (Mama's Broken Heart), Kacey Musgraves (Follow Your Arrow) and Sheryl Crow (Homecoming Queen). On her debut, Clark weaves her crystal voice around her sparse, emotional lyrics, creating a colorful quilt of stories that cover the lives of people trying to deal with loneliness, lost love, loss and cope with the vagaries daily life. »»»
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. One could easily imagine Urban would be comfortable singing this smooth, a tad soulful, upbeat sounding song. And the Urban connection seems most apt as Worsham continues living in the shadow of the superstar for awhile among »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Larry Campbell and Teresa Campbell could have been content to retain their status as musicians on call, given the fact that they've loaned their services to any number of high profile employers -- Bob Dylan, Rosanne Cash, Mavis Staples, Levon Helm, Little Feat, Shawn Colvin and Phil Lesh among them. »»»

Happy Endings CD review - Happy Endings
Right off the bat, the title of Old Dominion's album "Happy Endings" is far better than "Meat and Candy," its prior effort. ("Meat" in an album title? Really?) But also on an artistic level, OD's follow-up shows signs of growth. With that said, though, there's nothing on this new release as immediately catchy as "Snapback." »»»

Work CD review - Work
Four albums on, Ron Pope seems well positioned to garner the commercial acclaim that's somehow eluded him up until now. Although critics have begun taking notice, Pope's still in search of that big breakout that's decidedly his due. Given the upbeat entries that initially establish this latest outing, the definitively titled "Work," Pope appears to have taken a decided stance that leans towards those very ends. »»»
