|10x GRAMMY-nominee Brandy Clark has announced two very special UK headline dates as part her upcoming Art of the Storyteller tour. Tickets go on sale Thursday 31 March at 9am via www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
The news precedes the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards where Brandy is nominated for two awards: Song of the Year (“A Beautiful Noise” performed by Alicia Keys and Brandi Carlile) and Best American Roots Performance (“Same Devil” featuring Carlile).
The nominations add to a landmark year for Clark, whose new deluxe album, Your Life is a Record (Deluxe), is out now on Warner Records. The special extended edition features all eleven tracks from Clark’s Grammy-nominated album, Your Life is a Record, as well as six new songs including “Same Devil.” The deluxe version, which was released this past spring to celebrate Your Life is a Record’s one-year anniversary, also includes a collaboration with Lindsey Buckingham as well as “Remember Me Beautiful,” which Clark wrote late last year with Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose for NPR’s Morning Edition Song Project. Released to widespread acclaim, Your Life is a Record was nominated for Best Country Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards and landed on several “Best of 2020” lists including NPR Music, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Variety, Paste and Slate.
A ten-time GRAMMY nominee and CMA Awards “Song of the Year” recipient, Clark is one of her generation’s most respected and celebrated songwriters and musicians. Her songs include Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow,” Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two” and Hailey Whitter’s “Ten Year Town.” Her past two solo albums—2013’s 12 Stories and 2016’s Big Day in a Small Town—each garnered immense critical acclaim landing on “Best of the Year” lists at New York Magazine, Billboard, NPR Music, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Stereogum and many more.
Brandy Clark will be appearing at The Long Road Festival in Leicestershire before her UK headline dates in August and September.
