Growing up in her hometown of Morton, Washington, Clark dreamed of being a country singer. Once she moved to Nashville, she found success as a songwriter - penning The Band Perry's “Better Dig Two,” Miranda Lambert's “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and Kacey Musgraves' “Follow Your Arrow.” The dream of being an artist in her own right came true two years ago when her first album, the stunning 12 Stories, debuted.
Over the past decade, Clark has established herself as one of country music’s greatest storytellers. Last year marked several successful acoustic tours and the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore album, Big Day in a Small Town, which was produced by Nashville’s Jay Joyce and garnered Clark two 2017 Grammy nominations for Best Country Album and Best Solo Performance for her emotional second single, “Love Can Go To Hell.”
The album has been revered as "gritty and visceral" (Associated Press), "aggressive and big-grinned" (SPIN) and also “made her one of country’s driving forces” (TIME).Rolling Stone praised, “it's music tooled alternately for stadiums and songwriting circles, commercial and public radio, line-dance bars and coffee shops…Clark is good at bending country boilerplate.”
