SPOTLIGHT ON ACHIEVEMENT
David Cantwell, adjunct professor of English, recently published a piece on country singer Brandy Clark for The New Yorker online. Cantwell’s essay, published on March 6, 2020, reviews several of singer Brandy Clark’s songs. Cantwell states, “For nearly a decade now, women have been practically excluded from mainstream-county-radio playlists, even as the lion’s share of the best country music is increasingly written and performed by women. And no one illustrates that better than Clark, who writes songs as well as anyone.” Cantwell is a regular contributor to The New Yorker.
