The Nashville, Tennessee based Clark received her first of an impressive six career GRAMMY nominations in 2013 in the Best Country Song category for co-writing the Miranda Lambert No. 1 hit "Mama's Broken Heart."

Brandy also won the 2014 CMA Song of the Year Award for "Follow Your Arrow," which she co-wrote with Shane McAnally and Kacey Musgraves, and was also nominated for a CMA New Artist Of The Year that same year.
2016 brought the release of her sophomore album, Big Day In A Small Town, which also garnered two GRAMMY nominations for Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance ("Love Can Go To Hell") and once again topped critics' "Best of " lists including NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, among others thus cementing Clark as one of country music's most talented artists, beloved by fans, critics, and fellow entertainers alike.

White Noise/White Lines, Kelsey Waldon captures the rugged country sound of her touring band without sacrificing the intimacy of her songwriting. Waldon is native of Monkey’s Eyebrow, Kentucky, who took an interest in singing, songwriting and playing guitar as a child. After moving to Nashville, she cultivated a loyal following through frequent touring across the U.S. and two critically acclaimed albums. Her persistence paid off when, on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, John Prine invited Kelsey to join his Oh Boy Records family. White Noise/White Lines released October 4, 2019 on Oh Boy Records.
White Noise/White Lines was included in NPR Music’s Best of 2019 roundup, as well as Garden & Gun, The Fader, Paste, Stereogum, and The Bitter Southerner's best of/year end lists. Rolling Stone named one of the album’s singles, “Kentucky, 1988” as their #1 country and Americana song of 2019 and NPR Music likened the track to Loretta Lynn’s Coal Miner’s Daughter noting that in this song, “Waldon pinpoints the rustic people and place she comes from.”
