CMA winner and six-time Grammy Award nominee Brandy Clark is performing in a special benefit concert for Solvang Festival Theater on Wednesday, May 2.
Before striking out on her own as a performer with three back-to-back critically acclaimed albums, Clark was one of the most in-demand songwriters in Nashville. She’s been recorded by The Band Perry, Miranda Lambert, and Kacey Musgraves among others. “Follow Your Arrow” (recorded by Musgraves) won Clark the CMA Song of the Year Award in 2014.
Clark creates characters with her songs. There’s the aging beauty of “Homecoming Queen” and the tempted exes of “You Can Come Over.” The rocky waters of a relationship are navigated in “Drinkin’ Smokin’ Cheatin’.” Part of a vanguard in country music that tips a hat to tradition while not eschewing its evolution, Clark says that the only music she’s ever listened to consistently is country.
“I want to keep that alive, so there’s a responsibility in that for me,” she said.
From emotional ballads to boot stompin’ good fun, Clark and her band deliver a show that’s not to be missed.
The show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25, $35, and $95 for Golden Circle including a meet ‘n’ greet with Clark at a catered post-show reception.
