Nashville, Tenn. – Two of Nashville’s “best-kept secret(s)” (Billboard/Taste of Country) are getting together for a noteworthy tour promising an incredible night of music and immense talent. Warner Bros. Record’s labelmates Brandy Clark and Charlie Worsham will come together on more than 20 tour dates this spring. Having previously collaborated on multiple esteemed events including Front and Center’s CMA Songwriter Series as well as Worsham’s 2016 Midnite Jamboree – which Billboard’s Chris Willman called “the hottest show of CMA Fest…in every conceivable way” – the revered pair will hit the road together beginning on April 6 at The Southern in Charlottesville, Va. with stops in Washington, D.C., Austin, Texas, Nashville, Tenn. and more. Tickets are on sale now at www.ticketmaster.com and www.ticketfly.com.
"Charlie Worsham is one of my favorite singers, songwriters, and musicians. I absolutely love his new record and where his heart is musically," shares Clark, "I can't wait to share the stage with him."
“Few artists can make you feel the power of music quite like Brandy Clark,” raved CMT of Clark’s ability to move crowds with only her voice and an acoustic guitar. 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 Country 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.”
"Brandy is everything I love about country music. She speaks her truth, and she breaks new ground with every song she writes," shares Worsham. "She's beloved by the Nashville community, and each time she and I have collaborated, it's been a blast. This tour is going to be so much fun, and I know the fans who fill up the venue each night will bring with them the same deep love for music that we have as artists."
Widely acclaimed within the Nashville community, Worsham is set for a breakthrough year with the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album, Beginning of Things. Already receiving advance critical acclaim, NPR Music praises, “…Worsham has made a sophomore album that, if there's justice, will give him an unforgettable year. It's a strong statement of purpose and further proof that country aimed at the center can be deeply intelligent, beautifully crafted and meaningful," while American Songwriter asserts, “…shows him to be one of country’s most formidable dark horses, a quiet contender worthy of the attention and airplay claimed by his less cerebral contemporaries…" The album is now available for pre-order, which includes instant downloads of five recently unveiled tracks—“The Beginning of Things,” “Old Times Sake,” “Southern By The Grace of God,” “Cut Your Groove,” and “Call You Up.”
