It's always nice to see stars humbled by a simple tour stop. They see so many cities throughout the year that some have even commented they have to be told…
Sunny's current single Bad Girl Phase is available for download on iTunes now
Sunny Sweeney is ready to talk, or rather sing, about it all – the good, the bad, and the ugly—on her new album PROVOKED, a 13-song sampling from the songstress American Songwriter raves as “a modern country music singer with a retro streak.” After her first two albums, Heartbreaker’s Hall of Fame and Concrete, this critically acclaimed Texas honky-tonker isn’t about to play coy now. Sweeney has teamed up with Thirty Tigers to release her third album on August 5, 2014 with SiriusXM’s “The Highway” already championing the lead single “Bad Girl Phase.”
Someone please explain to me why Brandy Clark isn't a mainstream star yet. Anyway, check out Brandy performing His Hands live with the always amazing Jennifer Nettles. His Hands is…
As they always do, People magazine is offering free song downloads as part of their special country edition, but this month there are some songs by really big names. Just…
What! No Idaho dates? Boooo!
Yes, I'm honestly sad about that. Guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed for the second leg of the tour.
Anyhoo, the tour sounds like it's going to be all kinds of awesome with Eric bringing Dwight Yoakam out for the entire tour and the Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, and the hard rocking band Halestorm joining him for various shows.
In disappointing, I'm-definitely-making-a-mountain-out-of-a-mole-hill news, it's been revealed that Brandy Clark's music video for Get High will debut exclusively on PerezHilton.com today.
Yes, Perez Hilton, the often-pink-haired celebrity gossip blogger, is exclusively debuting a country music video.
What the what?
Brandy Clark posted the above photo on her instagram to show her support on Shane's big win at the ACM's! And Kacey Musgraves also engaged by "liking" it. Considering this…
Ever since the day Chely Wright came out as a lesbian and then made such a big deal about country music as a whole not accepting her because of her announcement, I've been on the lookout for someone I thought might just be able to prove that country fans care about good music and not about a person's orientation.
Yes, it's been my private mission to prove Chely Wright wrong.
It's not as if I actually care if someone is gay, because I really don't, but rather I've been hoping that someone would come along who could show the world that the country music fan base isn't just a collection of bigoted rednecks who would hate a person simply because they're gay. Unfortunately, Chely, despite being brave in her coming out and I'm sure being a lovely person in real life, didn't help matters at all by documenting on a regular basis how she felt the country community had turned its back on her.
Since then, NashvilleGab has featured several different stories regarding gay country singers. It's not like we have a gay agenda around here or anything like that, it just isn't a subject that I or any of my other writers shy away from.
That said, I've still been looking and keeping my ears and eyes open for the time when someone would break through and be popular and talked about and have great music and would just happen to also be gay.
Turns out that person is already here.
Brandy Clark, part of the group of ladies that penned that mega hit 'Mama's Broken Heart' for Miranda Lambert, has been busy working on her own career. Which is promising…
Jennifer Nettles and Brandy Clark took the stage at the Ryman last month in Nashville. The photos above and the review below were given to me by NashvilleGab friend @Sugarlandaholic. …
So many people think Brandy Clark's going to have a breakout year this year. While I'm hopeful she will, 2013 was tough for women in country music. If you've seen the mini-documentary I put together, you're familiar with what I'm talking about.
Brandy reveals in my new interview with her that while she's not too worried about radio play for her own music right now, she's pretty sure that women are getting ready to make a come back on the radio.
Brandy also revealed an exciting bit of news. She's currently in New York writing music for a new Hee Haw musical that's getting ready to happen.
How cool is that?
Here's my conversation with Brandy, followed by some of her tunes.
Here's the video for the lead single from Brandy's new release.
