Hailey Whitters with Brittney Spencer at 3rd and Lindsley, 9/23/2021

If you aren’t already a fan of Brittney Spencer, grab your closest Internet Machine and look up her song “Sorrys Don’t Work No More.” A breakout streaming hit for Spencer released in late 2020, the track follows in the footsteps of some of country’s greatest heartbreak ballads, using a simple, piano-forward arrangement to showcase Spencer’s masterful voice and tender lyrics. The song also appears on Spencer’s 2020 EP Compassion, a four-track taste of the breadth and depth of her talent. This year, it’s been followed by a new single called “Sober & Skinny,” appearances on recordings and in person with The Highwomen and lots more — now’s the time to get to know her work so you’ll be ready when she hits the big time.
