It’s not easy to compile a list of Brandy Clark‘s Top 5 songs. Not only are there too many worthy candidates to choose from on Clark’s albums as an artist herself, there are also the songs she’s written for others to consider as well. Put both groups together, and Clark has a hefty catalog.
There was a time when Clark was known only as a songwriter — or, more specifically, only as a really, really good songwriter; hers is the name (or at least one of the names) behind dozens of hit songs, recorded by everyone from Kacey Musgraves to Toby Keith. But in 2013, Clark also started recording and releasing her own albums — and, as it turns out, she’s really good at that, too.
The Boot’s list of the Top 5 Brandy Clark Songs selects works from both Clark’s songwriter catalog and her artist catalog.
