Clark has no words for Grammy news

Friday, December 5, 2014 – Brandy Clark was boarding a plane when she learned of her Grammy Country Album of the Year nomination, one of two she received on Friday.

"This is just amazing," Clark said. "I really don't have the words for it. To see '12 Stories' in the middle of all of those great albums and artists is a dream come true." Clark is traveling to Albuquerque, N.M. where she will perform tomorrow night at the Isleta Resort and Casino Showroom along with Lee Ann Womack.

Later in the day, upon learning of her New Artist of the Year nomination, Clark said, "I am almost speechless. This just doesn't seem real. I could never have imagined the journey my team and I have been on since '12 Stories' was released last year. I have received such support from the fans, the critics, the industry, and my fellow artists and songwriters. I am beyond thankful to be included in this category with my fellow nominees."

"12 Stories" was released in 2013 on independent label Slate Creek Records. She has since signed with Warner.

Clark won the 2014 CMA Song of the Year Award for co-writing the Kacey Musgraves hit "Follow Your Arrow," signed with Warner in November. She has toured with artists including Eric Church and Jennifer Nettles, opened for Loretta Lynn at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and will tour with Alan Jackson on his "25th Anniversary Tour" in 2015.

Clark has co-written Miranda Lambert's number one hit "Mama's Broken Heart," The Band Perry's number one hit "Better Dig Two," Toby Keith's current single "Drunk Americans," and songs recorded by Sheryl Crow, Reba McEntire, Craig Morgan, Kacey Musgraves, LeAnn Rimes, Darius Rucker, Keith Urban and Gretchen Wilson.
