Great albums include great songs, and Brandy Clark’s Big Day in a Small Town is fat with them. The singer’s songwriting relationship with Shane McAnnally is among country’s most delightful pairings. They’re simply working on another level.
Fans of “Girl Next Door,” Clark’s 12 Stories album and, well, this singer in general, expect a certain sassy charm and tracks like “Daughter” deliver. “Yeah, karma’s a bitch, so I hope you have a daughter,” she sings during a standout track on Big Day in a Small Town.
