The country singer Brandy Clark performed “Hold My Hand” with Dwight Yoakam at the Grammys on Sunday night (Feb. 8th). Clark and Yoakam both served as openers for Eric Church on Church’s recent American tour.
“Hold My Hand” is a spare, affecting ballad that originally appeared on Clark’s acclaimed 12 Stories, released in 2013. Yoakam — known for a string of tough, swinging honky-tonk albums that topped the country charts in the early ’90s — played guitar and provided tasteful harmonies.
Clark was nominated in the best new artist category; she lost to Sam Smith.
