NASHVILLE, TN (March 29, 2021) – Offering a message of finding your own individual strength, CALLISTA CLARK shines with “It’s ‘Cause I Am.” Her first single officially impacts Country radio today and is available now. Proving she can hold her own, the 17-year-old makes an unapologetic declaration of confidence on her debut collection Real To Me out now via Big Machine Records.
Co-penned alongside Cameron Jaymes and Laura Veltz, the track “fits snugly in the canon of empowering country woman hits” (Forbes). In a world full of people telling her what she can and cannot do she boldly delivers:
I can’t help that I’m one of a kind
I’m more than meets the eye
If I ain’t what you like
Well that’s alright
You want a one-dimensional woman
It’s okay, I understand
If I seem too complicated for ya
Mmm it’s ‘cause I am
It’s ‘cause I am
From when she first stepped on stage to perform with Jennifer Nettles at 12 years old to her inspiring online videos, the Georgia native has revealed herself to be not only a singer of incredible depth and pathos, but also a skilled musician of 8 instruments. Amassing over 65 million views on Facebook and 6 million views on YouTube, she’s grown her own grassroots fanbase, catching the attention of music industry moguls Scooter Braun (SB Projects) and Scott Borchetta (Big Machine Label Group).
