Rising Country music singer-songwriter Liddy Clark has announced her highly anticipated debut EP “Testing The Waters” which will be available across streaming platforms on July 27th. Adding to the excitement, Clark has released her rendition of a timeless classic, “I Hope You Dance,” following an exclusive premiere with Taste of Country.
I’m so excited to finally release these songs,” shares Clark. “I’ve had them in my pocket for a while and everyone always asked about them at live shows. It’s great to finally share with the world some of the most important songs I’ve written so far.” The EP is home to one of Clark’s most impactful songs, and a fan-favorite “Painted By Numbers.”
The country songstress is already off to an impressive start this Summer. Earlier this month, Clark took the stage at Wear Orange – Healing through Harmony, a youth concert in her hometown of Parkland, FL honoring survivors and communities affected by gun violence. She also made numerous appearances at CMA Festival in Nashville, TN and a dazzling performance at Fourth on Flagler, a 4th of July celebration in West Palm Beach, FL.
Bringing both heart-on-sleeve honesty and real-life detail to each track, “Testing The Waters” shifts from the wistful romanticism and cascading guitar work of “Falling Into You” to the piercing heartbreak and aching harmonies of “Holding Her Hand” to the no-regrets attitude and fierce riffs of “Single on Valentine’s Day.” On “I Hope You Dance,” Clark teams up with her cousin Drew Womack, formerly with Sons of the Desert, who provided backup vocals on the original Lee Ann Womack ballad. And on “Painted By Numbers,” Clark closes out Testing the Waters with a quietly intense, string-laced reflection on body image and self-empowerment.
