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.

On her new album, White Noise/White Lines, Kelsey Waldon captures the rugged country sound of her touring band without sacrificing the intimacy of her songwriting. Waldon is native of Monkey’s Eyebrow, Kentucky, who took an interest in singing, songwriting and playing guitar as a child. After moving to Nashville, she cultivated a loyal following through frequent touring across the U.S. and released two critically acclaimed albums. Her persistence paid off when, on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, John Prine invited Kelsey to join his Oh Boy Records family. White Noise/White Lines released October 4, 2019 on Oh Boy Records.

White Noise/White Lines was included in NPR Music’s Best of 2019 roundup, as well as Garden & Gun, The Fader, Paste, Stereogum, and The Bitter Southerner's best of/year end lists. Rolling Stone named one of the album’s singles, “Kentucky, 1988” as their #1 country and Americana song of 2019 and NPR Music likened the track to Loretta Lynn’s “Coal Miner’s Daughter” noting that in this song, “Waldon pinpoints the rustic people and place she comes from.”

We’re all in this together.
All of us are constantly monitoring the ever-changing situation with regard to COVID-19. As part of the community, we’re sad that we can’t do what we do best…host some great nights of live music. We know what an emotional uplift music provides at times like this. But what’s most important for right now is for us to follow all guidelines regarding large gatherings -- mandated or recommended -- until we are told it’s safe to re-open. We need to do our part as good neighbors to help lessen the impact of the coronavirus. Right now all of our shows through the end of May are officially postponed, but governmental timelines at all levels are constantly being reassessed, so unfortunately ours remains fluid while all of this progresses.
We’re still hoping that we are able to reschedule as many of the postponed events as possible, so hold onto your tickets! They will be valid for rescheduled dates. We know you have questions about refunds for rescheduled shows, and we’re working through that too. We’re in uncharted waters, so give us a minute and continue to check back here for more info as we have it; this is where we will be making any announcements. Hang in there and stay safe, everyone. We miss you all and can’t wait to see you again!
