World Cafe Playlist for 08/18/2023

Brandy Clark joins host Raina Douris

Brandy Clark has written songs for some of country music’s biggest names: from Kacey Musgraves to Reba McEntire to Keith Urban. But on her new self-titled album, Clark was writing for herself. On the World Caf, Clark talks about crafting her latest record with the production help of another Brandi: Brandi Carlile. Plus, Clark talks about storytelling, writing for country versus Americana fans and her Tony Award-nominated Broadway show.

Listen to the session here.
