From the one stoplight town of Salemburg, North Carolina to the stage lights of Nashville, TN, contemporary country artist Brittany McLamb brings to the table a unique blend of powerhouse vocals and a grassroots sound. The small town girl with big-time vocals was immersed in country and gospel music from a young age. “I grew up watching Hee Haw, listening to Alabama and Randy Travis tapes in my mama’s old, white Monte Carlo and watching early 90’s country music videos that my sisters recorded on our VCR,” remembers McLamb.
With an entire family that loved country, bluegrass and gospel music, and extended members who sang in gospel groups, McLamb followed suit by joining her church’s youth choir where she was featured in several lead roles and solos. She carried these skills and passion over to local talent shows and pageants. Passing down her crown and title of “Little Miss Salemburg,” McLamb gave her first vocal performance at the age of 10. Dressed the part in a fringe and rhinestone embellished cowgirl outfit topped off with a matching cowboy hat and boots, she sang a crowd pleasing rendition of “If You’re Not in it For Love” by Shania Twain. “I just remember hearing the whole elementary school gym roar in applause,” said McLamb. “I WAS SOLD! I knew at that point what I wanted to be when I grew up.”
By high school she had signed with a local talent agency that placed her as a performer on classic live television shows such as “Arthur Smith's Carolina Calling” and the “The Jimmy Snow Gospel Hour,” where she traveled to Nashville to perform on the show.
After graduating from East Carolina University, Brittany made the move to Nashville to begin her music career alongside music industry veteran and mentor, Patsi Bale Cox, who had worked at several record labels as well as independent public relations firms. Cox soon introduced her to the late Billy Block, whose long-standing radio show was a Nashville staple. After spending nearly 3 years building her network, honing her skills and interning for the Billy Block radio show, Brittany began writing and recording for her first EP. The EP was released to iTunes in 2013.
Following the release of her debut self-titled EP, McLamb completed a recording project in early 2015 at Omni Studios with the incredible fiddle master Deanie Richardson and Singer/Songwriter Melonie Cannon at the helm, alongside some of Nashville’s best musicians. These original songs showcase McLamb’s dynamic vocal ability and depth, as well as, her country and bluegrass roots. Two of these recordings were released Fall 2015. A third single, which was not part of that project, entitled “I Like Where This Is Going” was released in 2016, which McLamb co-wrote.
Since these releases, Brittany has had the opportunity to open for artists such as LANCO, Parmalee, William Michael Morgan, Charles Kelley, Brooke Eden and Granger Smith to name a few. She has also made her debut across the pond with performances in London, England and a feature on Country Hits UK with her single "Crushin On You" playing on The Front Porch with Baylen Leonard.
Brittany's latest single entitled "Wanted" was released on June 19th, 2020. This new single can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play, etc.
