At just 19 years old Callista Clark has a lot to say, wielding her creative gifts as both a defense and an instrument of peace as she puts her heart on display with her debut full-length album REAL TO ME: THE WAY I FEEL (Big Machine Records), available now. Expanding her REAL TO ME collection to 10 tracks, Callista exudes both strength and vulnerability in pointed lyrics that leave no doubt where she stands as reflected on songs like “Brave Girl,” “Gave It Back Broken” and Top 20 debut “It’s ‘Cause I Am,” with which she became Country radio’s most successful new artist debut of 2021. Produced by Nathan Chapman, Callista’s debut album reveals a songwriter of considerable depth and wit and a gifted singer with confidence and an impressive presence unique to someone her age. It all adds up to a powerful launch for an artist whose music is poised to become the soundtrack for the heartbreaks and triumphs of her generation. The iHeartCountry On The Verge Artist made her national television debut on Live with Kelly & Ryan where she was touted as “the next big thing in Country music” and the momentum continued with Billboard featuring Callista two years in a row on their annual “21 Under 21” list, plus she was the youngest member ever named to CMT’s Next Women of Country in the 2022 class. Following appearances on some of the year’s biggest festivals, the Opry NextStage artist joins Brett Young in the UK next month for a run of sold-out shows.
