Callista Clark Will be Live on the General Mills Stage at The Jackson county Fair Thursday July 21, 2022!
Every song has a story and at just 18 years old Callista Clark has a lot to say. Like so many talented singer/songwriters that paved the way before her, the young songstress wields her creative gifts as both a defense and an instrument of peace as she puts her heart on display with her debut collection Real To Me, out now via Big Machine Records. Blending her love for authentic, timeless classics with the sounds of her Georgia roots, Clark “commands her career from its breakthrough beginnings” (American Songwriter).
Gearing up for the release, she collaborated with many of Country music’s leading songwriters including Jonathan Singleton, Laura Veltz, Nicolle Galyon, and Emily Shackleton, among others. The proof that Clark can hold her own among Nashville’s most prominent is evident as she was recently named an iHeartCountry On The Verge Artist and her debut single, “It’s ‘Cause I Am” continues to climb and was Country radio’s most successful new artist debut of 2021.
She made her national television debut last year with an interview and performance of the single on Live with Kelly & Ryan who touted her as “the next big thing in Country music.” Coming off of a whirlwind few months, she shows no signs of slowing down and was recently featured as the only Country artist in BILLBOARD’s annual “21 Under 21" all genre list. Her inspiring videos with which Scooter Braun (SB Projects) and Scott Borchetta (Big Machine Label Group) took notice, have amassed over 130 million views across all socials + YouTube.
