Slate Creek Records’ singer-songwriter Brandy Clark held her 12 Stories album release party Tuesday, Oct. 29 at the Country Music Association (CMA). Clark honored everyone involved in the project’s creation, including the album’s co-writers Mark Stephen Jones, Matt Jenkins, Trent Jeffcoat, Mark D. Sanders, Deanna Walker, Shane McAnally and Jessie Jo Dillon. A swell of industry supporters gathered to honor one of the most celebrated releases of the year.

Clark also honored producer Dave Brainard. “I say he was the last songwriter on all these songs,” says Clark. “He loved them like he wrote them, and treated them like he wrote them. He also did so much to promote the album. When this was presented to him, I’m not sure there are a lot of producers who would have done this. He put so much into this.”

She also gave much credit to Emilie Marchbanks Glover of Fitzgerald Hartley, who heard early demos of Clark’s music and became an avid supporter. Fitzgerald Hartley later came on board to create the project.

Clark is also a co-writer behind “Better Dig Two” for The Band Perry, and “Mama’s Broken Heart” for Miranda Lambert. Clark is also featured in the current MusicRow 2013 Publisher Issue.
