Powerhouse Songwriters Brandy Clark and Charlie Worsham Announce U.S. Tour

Brandy Clark and Charlie Worsham on the same stage? We’re in. The powerhouse country writers just announced a tour together, hitting 27 cities across the U.S.

The tour kicks off April 6 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Then the next three months find the pair trekking across most of America, save for the West Coast. They hit up some excellent spots in Texas, too.

For instance, Sam’s Burger Joint in San Antonio hosts the two on April 28. For anybody who hasn’t been to Sam’s, the club features great sound and an intimate setting. Oh, and awesome burgers. Literally everything you’d want from a night out.

For the time being, Clark is busy being nominated for a few Grammy Awards, while Worsham releases his second record in the middle of the tour. Titled Beginning Of Things, the album drops April 21.

Clark snagged two Grammy nominations this year. Her song “Love Can Go To Hell” landed in the Best Country Solo Performance category, while her album Big Day In A Small Town landed on the list of Best Country Albums for the whole year. This marks the third straight year and fourth overall Clark received a nomination.

In addition to an already amazing solo career, Clark wrote some of the most critically lauded commercial country tunes of the past few years. She co-wrote Miranda Lambert’s hit “Mama’s Broken Heart” as well as Kacey Musgraves breakthrough “Follow Your Arrow.”

But Worsham is no slouch, either. The 31-year-old made his way across the country on several tours over the past 6 years. He appeared on the road with artists like Taylor Swift, Kenny Rogers, Wade Bowen and Miranda Lambert.

Worsham’s 2013 debut album Rubberband scored lots of love with the critics and peaked at No. 12 on the charts. His highly anticipated follow-up Beginning Of Things represents what he says is his falling in love back with music.

We have to say, the pairing of the two may seem a little strange at first blush, but what a cool concert. Expect a great mix of upbeat rockin’ tunes and critically acclaimed songwriting.
