Brandy Clark Performs “Who You Thought I Was” on NBC’s TODAY

Grammy-nominated and CMA Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Brandy Clark was featured on NBC’s “TODAY” this morning performing “Who You Thought I Was” from her critically acclaimed new album, Your Life is a Record. Watch below:

In celebration of the album, Clark will also perform on “CBS This Morning” this weekend as part of their “Saturday Sessions” series.

Produced by award winning producer Jay JoyceYour Life is a Record was released last Friday on Warner Records (stream/purchase HERE) and features Clark’s most personal songwriting to date.

Created after the dissolution of a long-term relationship, the 11-track album was recorded largely as an intimate acoustic four-piece—featuring Clark, Joyce, Giles Reaves and Jedd Hughes—with subsequent Memphis strings and horns layered in with arrangements by Lester Snell. It also features special guest appearances from Randy Newman (“Bigger Boat”) and guitarist John Osborne (“Bad Car”).

In support of the album, Clark recently kicked off her headlining “Who You Thought I Was Tour” which will include special album release shows at Nashville’s 3rd & Lindsley on March 29, Los Angeles’ Lodge Room on April 7, New York’s Bowery Ballroom on April 28 and Chicago’s The Space on May 8. See below for complete tour itinerary. Every ticket purchased for the headline tour includes a choice of a CD or digital download copy of Your Life is a Record. Available in most markets, check ticket details for confirmation.

A six-time Grammy nominee and CMA Awards “Song of the Year” recipient, Clark is one of her generation’s most respected and celebrated songwriters and musicians. Her songs include Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow,” Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two” and Hailey Whitter’s “Ten Year Town,” which was just named #2 on Rolling Stone’s “25 Best Country and Americana Songs of 2019” round up. Her two solo albums—2013’s 12 Stories and 2016’s Big Day in a Small Town—each garnered immense critical acclaim landing on “Best of the Year” lists at New York Magazine, Billboard, NPR Music Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, etc. NPR Music’s Ann Powers calls her, “a storyteller of the highest caliber,” while Rolling Stone’s Will Hermes declares, “a country visionary…the consolation of a beautiful voice delivering a well-built song, cold truth rising from it like fog off dry ice.”
