Brandy Clark's '12 STORIES' album is THE story of the year, but have you heard her story on your local mainstream station? After all of these accolades and praises, is she in the seemingly more and more required Top 20 playlist? No. Why? Because she refuses to fit the "mold" of the current country music cookie cutter artists. Brandy is not a "conveyor belt" artist. She is one of the closest "true country" female artists out there right now and is also one of country's brightest shining stars as a songwriter. Her song "Stripes" is an underground country hit that deserves to break through the dirt and thrive in the sunshine. Let's hope with all of the worldwide industry attention, this trend will start to change because Brandy is an amazing artist and her music deserves to be heard on radio everywhere, not just on satellite, internet and the sporadic independently owned mainstream stations. 

Let's hope people take the time to get to know this outstanding artist in 2014 by speaking out for her music. 

Tell everyone you know that you have a story to tell them, actually that you have "12 Stories" to tell them.

You can find Brandy online at, on Twitter at @TheBrandyClark and on Facebook.
