MCA Nashville country artist Clare Dunn leaves 100% of herself on the stage with her acclaimed guitar shredding skills, smoky and soulful vocals and her ability to entertain you with every note, chord and charming presence. She has toured with Bob Segar, Miranda Lambert & Chris Young and shared stages with Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Jamey Johnson and more.. while smashing the the boundaries of country music with her uncanny ability to rock her way through a country song. She is currently on a radio tour with performance dates being added to her schedule.
Her recent single More released this month has already garnered almost 4 million streams on spotify. On the heels of her hits Tuxedo and Move On, Dunn gives us every indication that she is here to stay. More was born out of an inspired co-write with Gordie Sampson and Josh Kear. Dunn told me "This was hands down the easiest co-write I ever experienced. It was an effortless write as we were all inspired by the line "No one is going to love you more." My family came to mind when writing the song. I am so lucky to have a family who is a rock solid support system for me. They give me so much, most of all the freedom to chase my dreams.'
Born and raised in South East Colorado, this young lady was raised on a farm and was writing music in her head while on the back of a John Deere. Clare has paid her proverbial dues but embraced the road to her first hit song. Clare is a Belmont University graduate and earned her college tuition by driving trucks for harvest through Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska during every academic break. It was during this time when she first picked up a guitar and she hasn’t set it down since. She also worked as a tour guide at The Grand Ole' Opry. She makes her home in Nashville and while not on the road she is writing with some of the most renowned songwriters from Nashville and LA including Hillary Lindsey, Blair Daly, Liz Rose, Angelo, Terry McBride, Brice Long, Will Hoge and more.
Clare talked about her fans and how they have influenced her journey and she spoke from her heart. I asked her to deliver a message directly to her fans and she responded "I hope my music can be a part of their soundtrack in life because they are a part of mine. I believe in my fans and want them to understand they can be all they want to be in life and that who they are is always enough."
Her passion for life and her career translate to the heartfelt lyrics of her new release, "More than words could ever say it." We simply want MORE.
