After a nearly three year wait, fans will soon be able to buy Brandy Clark’s follow-up to the critically-acclaimed 12 Stories. The new album, Big Day In A Small Town, will be released on June 10th via Warner Bros. Records, her first release since signing with the label in 2014.
Working with Jay Joyce, the project represents some change for Brandy Clark as the lead single “Girl Next Door” suggests.
“When I made 12 Stories, I think my dreams were a lot more realistic, in that I didn't expect a lot to happen... then it did,” Clark says. “This time, my dreams are very much what they were when I was going to Vince Gill and Patty Loveless concerts and decided I was going to move to Nashville. Right now, my dreams are as big as when I was naïve enough to really dream them.”
The singer/songwriter’s collection of songs on Big Day In A Small Town tells the stories of the football star, father, the homecoming queen, and the hairdresser as those stories and people the star grew up knowing. “All these songs, there's some little truth in them, somewhere, that resonates with me or that is about me,” she confesses.
