Brandy Clark and Dwight Yoakam Perform ‘Hold My Hand’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards
The song appears on Clark's Grammy-nominated debut album, '12 Stories,' which was up for Best Country Album this year. She was also nominated in the all-genre category of Best New Artist.
Clark's music is premised in simple storytelling, and the song provided a nice contrast from some of the other performances on the broadcast, centering around acoustic guitar figures and a sweet, evocative melody. When Yoakam joined in with harmonies underneath her lead vocal, it only served to lift the song to another level, earning a huge ovation from the Grammy audience.
Clark is best known as a songwriter who has written for the Band Perry, Miranda Lambert and Kacey Musgraves, but the independent success of her full-length debut has earned her a new contract with Warner Bros.
