Brandy Clark nominated for two GRAMMY Awards: Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance


November 24, 2020- Brandy Clark is nominated in two categories at the 63rd GRAMMY AwardsBest Country Album (Your Life is a Record) and Best Country Solo Performance (“Who You Thought I Was”).

The nominations culminate a breakthrough year for Clark following the release of her critically acclaimed new album, Your Life is a Record- out now on Warner Records (stream/purchase here). Produced by Jay Joyce, the album consists of eleven new tracks including the single, “Who You Thought I Was,” which she recently performed on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” Watch/share HERE.

Most recently, this fall, Clark released two new collaborations with Brandi Carlile- Like Mine” and “Same Devil.” Both produced by Carlile, the songs were recorded while working from the artists? respective quarantines and were released to critical acclaim. Of ‘Same Devil” Entertainment Weekly declares, “his haunting, acoustic ballad that conjures both dark alleys and spectral hollers as it addresses the sins and salvations that unite us, more than honors the promise of the great Brandi/y summit of 2020,” while Variety praises, “a harmonic convergence of names and voices that features the billing we might have thought possible only in fiction.”

Additionally, Clark wrote “A Beautiful Noise”- a new duet performed by Alicia Keys and Carlile- along with an all-female team of musicians including Keys, Carlile, Ruby Amanfu, Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, Linda Perry and Hailey Whitters, while her new song, “Only Time of Year,” is featured on the soundtrack of Hulu’s new Christmas movie, “Happiest Season.”
