Singer-songwriter Brandy Clark adds, “I am still pinching myself that I will be singing Kris Kristofferson’s music alongside the man himself. “What an absolute honor! Then having the opportunity to share that experience with Lady Antebellum, Jason Isbell, and Cece Winans is a dream. I hope people will check us out on Skyville Live on April 7 as it’s going to be such a fun show. How can you go wrong when you are singing and celebrating the music of Kris Kristofferson?”

Clark entered 2015 with two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Country Album of the Year for her critically acclaimed independent debut album 12 Stories. Already a CMA Award winner (2014 Song of the Year for “Follow Your Arrow,” which she co-wrote with Shane McAnally and Kacey Musgraves), Clark recently received two ACM Award nominations for Female Vocalist and Song of the Year (“Follow Your Arrow”). Now signed to Warner Bros. Records, Clark has plans to release a new album later this year. For more information, visit
