I saw Clare Dunn on stage this past August, when she opened for Parmalee. She put on a great acoustic performance for the audience. That’s a hard spot for a new artist to be in. She was on stage alone, singing for an audience she knew was anxiously waiting for the headliner to hit the stage. And, she did a great job. It was easy to see that Clare Dunn was doing what she wanted to do. One of the songs we got to hear was her “Cowboy Side of You,” which later spent a month on SiriusXM The Highway’s Top 45 chart.
In addition to the show I saw, she has opened for Keith Urban, Dierks bentley, Luke Bryan, and many more. Yesterday, she signed a recording contract with UMG Nashville, and we can all look forward to her debut album coming soon!
