Clark is the best new artist country radio isn’t playing. The songwriter (and frequent Kacey Musgraves collaborator) released her debut, “12 Stories,” in the fall after co-writing hits like “Mama’s Broken Heart” for Miranda Lambert and “Better Dig Two” for The Band Perry. “12 Stories” made almost every music critics’ best of 2013 list for its heart, wit, smart wordplay, and Clark’s expressive vocals. Hopefully, radio will catch up to her soon as it gets done with its bromance with bro-country.
