Clarksville, TN – Riverfest, presented by the City of Clarksville and Miller Lite, is pleased to announce Brandy Clark will be the featured headliner at the 2016 Festival. Brandy Clark will take the main stage as the headlining event on Saturday, September 10th, 2016 at 9:00pm. The concert is free and open to the public.
For Brandy Clark, the dream she harbored in her small hometown of Morton, Washington, was to be a country singer. Sure, once she moved to Nashville, she had successful cuts as a songwriter [The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two,” Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow”], but being an artist in her own right was a dream she had stopped dreaming until two years ago when her first album, the stunning 12 Stories, debuted.

A new study in the journal Nature Communications explores this puzzle of Ceres’ missing large craters, using data from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft, which has been orbiting Ceres since March 2015.
