When/Where: Wednesday, June 4th, XM/Highway Hard Rock Stage
Who: An ace Music Row songwriter whose creds include Miranda Lambert's "Mama's Broken Heart" and the Band Perry's "Better Dig Two."
Why You Can't Miss Her: Last year Clark struck out on her own, releasing her critically acclaimed debut LP and "bro country" antidote 12 Stories. Whether it's on the moxie-brimming revenge fantasy "Stripes" or the stoner-blues twang of "Get High," Clark handily justifies her critical darling status, telling whip-smart tales of hard living that overflow with true grit and nuanced imagery. Recommended for those looking for something a little more intimate before the stadium-sized shenanigans kick off the next day at LP Field.
