  • CLARE DUNN MAKES HER OPRY DEBUT.

    Clare Opry debut

    MCA Nashville’s bold, new up-and-comer Clare Dunn fulfilled a life-long dream when she took the stage at Nashville’s famed Grand Ole Opry Saturday night. Performing her brand new single, “Tuxedo,” and the heartfelt “Old Hat” off her self-titled EP, Clare received a warm reception from the packed Grand Ole Opry House. The audience included friends and family in town from her home state of Colorado, and former co-workers from Clare’s early days in Nashville when she worked in the Opry gift shop.

    “Singing my songs at the Grand Ole Opry is something I’ve dreamed of for so long,” Clare shares through joyous tears. “To share this now with my family, who always believed in me and worked so hard to help me pursue my dreams, I just cannot put into words how much this moment means to me.”

    Declared “One To Watch” by Billboard, The Boston Globe, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, USA Today and more, Clare has made a strong impression on critics and audiences alike with her stellar guitar work, her honest lyrics and her no-holds-barred stage show. Clare has upcoming shows in Mont.; Mass.; Penn. and Maine including opening for Lee Brice on the Life Off My Years Tour.

    Clare recalls one of the “coolest” shows she watched while working at the Opry. It was during Marty Stuart‘s birthday celebration, and he was joined onstage by Keith Urban. “Marty and Keith sat alone on bar stools with acoustic guitars and proceeded to bring the house down with Hank Sr.’s ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.’ And I just remember standing at the back and feeling that electricity and never felt a room like that before. I’d never felt that feeling at a show. It was unlike anything I had ever witnessed. That was truly inspiring night for me, along with many countless shows that I got to watch while working there.”

    Clare Dunn (one of the coolest shows at Opry) OC: …working there. :44
    “I think one of the best and most memorable shows I ever got to watch at the Opry while I was working there was during Marty Stuart’s birthday celebration and Keith Urban joined Marty on stage for a duet. So, Marty and Keith sat alone on bar stools with acoustic guitars and proceeded to bring the house down with Hank Sr.’s ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.’ And I just remember standing at the back and feeling that electricity and never felt a room like that before. I’d never felt that feeling at a show. It was unlike anything I had ever witnessed. That was truly inspiring night for me, along with many countless shows that I got to watch while working there.”

  • CLARE DUNN WILL COME ‘FULL CIRCLE’ AS SHE MAKES HER DEBUT AT THE GRAND OLE OPRY THIS WEEKEND.

    Clare Dunn makes her debut at the Grand Ole Opry Saturday night (March 5th), and it’s a homecoming of sorts for the singer from Colorado. The day after she moved to Nashville, she got a job working at the Opry’s gift shop. She worked there for several years while she was in college, and even after signing her first publishing deal as a songwriter.

    “I worked in the gift shop and I sold ‘Picture History Books’ before every show,” recalls Clare. “Every chance that I could and even a lot of times when I shouldn’t have, I would sneak into the house, and I would watch as much of the show as possible each night. Considering I worked every show every night, maybe I owe the Opry a buck or two back. [laughs] Anyway, I got to see Porter Wagoner before he passed away. I knew every Little Jimmy Dickens’ joke. I watched Jeanie Sealy & Jean Shepard in their elements every night, and witnessed so many new artists play the Opry for their first time and then go on to become superstars and return to the Opry. And it was just such an amazing experience.”

    So, for Clare, performing at the Grand Ole Opry is a full circle moment; one she’s not taking lightly. “I never dreamed in a million years while growing up driving tractors out on the Great Plains where I’m and listening to all the artists that played the Opry, I never dreamed that I would get a chance to see them or even be able to chase this dream myself,” says Clare. “So, working at the Opry was treasured time for me. It was a time of absorbing as much of the rich history of the Opry as I possibly could. It was a time of just getting to be near the music that shaped our genre, and getting to witness not only how the Opry house itself affects the fans, but the artists who are so honored to play that stage that made country music famous.”

    Clare has hit the airwaves with her new single, “Tuxedo,” which is featured on her self-titled EP that was released this past fall.

    “So I got a job working at the Grand Ole Opry literally the DAY AFTER I moved to Nashville! I worked there for several years while I was in college and during my first deal as a songwriter in town. I worked in the gift shop and I sold ‘Picture History Books’ before every show. There was a woman who would dress up like ‘Minnie Pearl’ and then every night she would make an announcement down in front of the audience about the Picture History Books, then my fellow book sellers and I would go down front, we’d hold up our books and immediate set to work hawking them for 15 bucks or whatever it was. And then every chance that I could, and even a lot of times when I shouldn’t have, I would sneak into the house and I would watch as much of the show as possible each night. Considering I worked every show every night, maybe I owe the Opry a buck or two back. [laughs] Anyway, I got to see Porter Wagoner before he passed away. I knew every Little Jimmy Dickens’ joke.

I don’t know how I’m going to get through it, but here we come Grand Ole Opry.”

  • CLARE DUNN HITS THE AIRWAVES WITH HER LATEST SINGLE, ‘TUXEDO.’

    Born on a farm in southeast Colorado, Clare Dunn grew up working cattle and driving tractors and combines, so she admires a hardworking man, like the one she writes and sings about in her new single, “Tuxedo.”

    “‘Tuxedo’ came about just through me wanting to express my hopes and what I look for in my dream guy and what I hope to be able to find…and as a farm girl I grew up admiring farm boys,” says Clare. “‘Tuxedo’ is a song about all the things that I admire about a man. He’s hardworking, he’s not afraid to go out there and do what it takes to provide, but he’s just a down-to-earth guy. I love Justin Timberlake and all his suits and ties and that sort of a picture of a man, but in reality, for me, a guy in a pair of jeans and a dirty white tee looks just as good to me.”

    Clare will hit the road with Lee Brice’s Life Off My Years Tour in March, but first, she hit the stage of the Grand Ole Opry on March 5th.

    Clare Dunn (Tuxedo) OC: …good to me. :58
    “‘Tuxedo’ came about just through me wanting to express my hopes and what I look for in my dream guy and what I hope to be able to find. Growing up on a small farm, I’m from nowhere. I come from the middle of nothing, and there’s 30 people in my hometown, and as a farm girl I grew up admiring farm boys. And my dad was a great example as a young girl watching the character that he’s made of and his honor – those are huge things. So, ‘Tuxedo’ is a song about all the things that I admire about a man. He’s hardworking, he’s not afraid to go out there and do what it takes to provide, but he’s just a down-to-earth guy. I love Justin Timberlake and all his suits and ties and that sort of a picture of a man, but in reality, for me, a guy in a pair of jeans and a dirty white tee looks just as good to me.”

  • NEW YEAR’S 2015: Brothers O, Canaan, Chris, Clare, Dierks, Eric, Kacey, Kip, LBT, Luke

    What are some of your favorite stars doing to welcome in the New Year? Many of them are working to help fans celebrate. Several artists have taken the time off around the holidays and will hit it hard when they return to the road in January. Some artists have resolutions and some are very helpful with their own hangover cures for those who imbibe too much on New Year’s Eve.

    Chris Stapleton is set to entertain folks who are in Music City on New Year’s Eve. He’ll perform downtown as part of the Jack Daniels Bash. Kings of Leon and Kelsea Ballerini are also on the bill.

    Little Big Town will ring in the New Year at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.

    Audio / John and TJ of Brothers Osborne talk about how people spend the last moments of the year, and the first moments of the new year.

    Download

    Brothers Osborne (New Year) OC: (TJ) …next month. :44
    JOHN: “I think it’s kind of funny how we spend literally the last moment and the very first moment of every year being extremely intoxicated, extremely, because you don’t want to wait until like 12:30 to get your buzz on. You’ve got to do it before midnight, and then once midnight happens, you’re like, ‘Omigod! Now it’s time to celebrate even more.’ Debauchery is the literally bookending your entire year.” TJ: “I love how everyone starts the year off with diets and then we end the year with like excessive amounts of food. And then you get to the end of the year, you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m going to start a diet on the 1st, so I’m going to eat everything that’s in front of me.’ I love it.” JOHN: “And come February 1st, ‘what diet?’” [laughs] TJ: “What diet? I’ll start it next month.” [laughs]

    Audio / Canaan Smith says there’s really no cure for a hangover.

    Canaan Smith (no hangover cure) OC: …long, you know? :32
    “There is no hangover cure. The older I get I’m like, ‘Oh God! What am I thinking?’ It’s terrible. Hangovers are awful. Tequila’s the worst. I try to stay away from Tequila, because it hurts me bad. I used to be a whiskey guy. I still am every now and then, but of late, I’m domestic, American beer, just something light and tasty. Shots are my worst enemy. When I start working shots into the picture, that’s when I know I’m gonna hurt the next morning. I just try to keep it the same, whether it’s whiskey or beer or whatever, I just stick with that same drink the whole night long, you know?”

    Audio / Clare Dunn suggests a good hangover cure.

    Clare Dunn (hangover cure) OC: …hangover cure. :10
    “Greasy food is always kind of a, you can let it go for one day before you start all your resolutions [laughs] after that. So, that’s probably my best hangover cure.”

     

    Audio / Dierks Bentley says there’s not really a cure for a hangover.

    Download

    Dierks (NYE) OC: …for that. :10
    “I think January first is universally accepted as a dog. So I mean, a little hair of the dog, I guess. But just…water and stay on the couch, I guess. There’s no real sure-fire cure for that.”

    Audio / Eric Church has a couple of hangover cures for those times (especially on New Year’s Eve) when you might imbibe a little too much.

    Download

    Eric Church (hangover cure) OC: …every time. :17
    “The best hangover cure – I’ve got two. One is 5-hour Energy [bottles], because of all the B-vitamins that are in it. You can start pounding those, and it’s either gonna work, or it’s gonna keep you up and prolong your misery. But the other one I have is just take two Advil and a beer in the morning. Hair of the dog, man – that works every time.”

    Audio / Kacey Musgraves, who begins a three-night stand with the ACL Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas beginning December 29th and running through New Year’s Eve (December 31st), has her own hangover cure.

    Download

    Kacey Musgraves (NYE) OC: …water. Yup! :32
    “Coconut water is a major help with hangovers and also, a lot of times we go and eat Vietnamese fuh. It’s a soup, and it’s got this awesome broth. You can get different things in it or whatever, but for some reason, it’s just like…it’s almost like a chicken noodle soup kind of an idea, you know, but it’s good. That’s good for hangovers too. That, sleep, Tylenol, coconut water and just water, in general. And when you’re drinking, have your alcohol, drink a little bit of water, drink some more alcohol, drink some water. Yup!”

    Audio / Kip Moore gives advice on how to avoid a hangover on New Year’s Eve.

    Download

    Kip Moore (avoiding hangovers on NYE) OC: …yourself. :03
    “Pace yourself on New Year’s – that’s the remedy. Pace yourself.”

    Audio / Luke Bryan will perform as part of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on ABC, which will certainly be one of his best New Year’s Eves…however, his favorite has to be when he and his now wife Caroline reunited.

    Download

    Luke Bryan (New Years-best) OC: …great night. :17
    “My best New Year’s Eve is definitely when my wife and I started back dating. We started back dating right before Christmas, and we went on a trip down to Florida and met some friends. And her birthday is New Year’s Eve. We celebrated it that night. It was just a great night.”

    Clare Dunn usually heads home to southeast Colorado for Christmas to celebrate with her parents and sister. When she has time to watch a Christmas classic, it’s usually either White Christmas or Christmas Vacation. When she and her family sit down for Christmas dinner, it’s not your usual turkey or ham. “I’m a steak girl, so I always talk my parents into grilling steak at Christmas,” she laughs. “So, that’s usually my favorite thing about Christmas, food-wise.”

    Mickey Guyton was named one of the 13 Country Artists to Watch in a recent issue of Billboard. “Few singers in or out of country can keep pace with Guyton vocally,” they were quoted as saying in the feature. Brothers Osborne, Clare Dunn and Cam were among the artists listed as ones to watch!

    Chris Stapleton has been added to the all-star lineup of artists already confirmed for a SKYVILLE LIVE homage to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Gregg Allman. The new installment of the  online music series will deliver live performances and collaborations by Allman with Stapleton, CMA Vocal Group of the Year Little Big Town and  Taj Mahal, streaming live December 11, 2015 on SkyvilleLive.com at 8pET/7pCT.
