I've got a feeling we're going to be hearing a lot from Brandy Clark. Her debut album,12 Stories, released in October of this year started at number 28 on the country chart has the air of a classic. Clark has written hits for other artists, including; an earlier Country Club featured Miranda Lambert's Momma's Broken Heart.
Will Hermes writes in his Rolling Stone review
In short it's an excellent CD. "Stripes" is perhaps the most commercial song on the CD and it has a great video. Enjoy
further proof of commercial country's sea change. Her debut is all airtight craftsmanship, sly wit and precise detailing that treats mainstream style like artisanal fast food. ...mostly her ear is unerring and her characters true — the kind of talent who makes the term "alt-country" unnecessary.
"There's no crime of passion worth a crime of fashion.
The only thing saving your life is that I don't look good in orange and I hate stripes."
