NASHVILLE, TN (April 23, 2021) – Rising Country newcomer CALLISTA CLARK continues to make a name for herself with her national television debut appearance on LIVE with Kelly & Ryan on Friday, April 30 airing at 9:00A (local time in most markets). Callista will perform her debut single “It’s ‘Cause I Am,” which has already established the Georgia songstress as the fastest moving new artist at Country radio in 2021. The appearance marks a celebratory occasion on the heels of the release of her debut collection Real To Me, out now via Big Machine Records.
Offering a message of finding your own individual strength, “It’s ‘Cause I Am” “fits snugly in the canon of empowering country woman hits” (Forbes) and has quickly garnered praise for her five-track collection, Real To Me. Attesting her wisdom and a writing depth well beyond her years, Billboard touts ”Callista arrives with confidence and verve” on her debut collection which has amassed over 1.2 million streams to date.
From when she first stepped on stage to perform with Jennifer Nettles at 12 years old to her inspiring online videos, the 17-year-old has revealed herself to be not only a singer of incredible depth and pathos, but also a skilled musician of 8 instruments. Amassing over 130 million views across all socials + YouTube, she’s grown her own grassroots fanbase, catching the attention of music industry moguls Scott Borchetta (Big Machine Label Group) and Scooter Braun (SB Projects).
