New country music from Brandy Clark is officially out for fans to enjoy! More here!

Brandy Clark is bringing fans a taste of who she truly is in her newest single, “Who You Thought I Was”! The best part? The idea for this track started with a joke…

Brandy was at the Americana Awards a several years back when John Prine took the stage and the audience errupted with clapping and an ovation. After the moment he said, “I’m John Prine, but I’d like to go back to being who you thought I was.”

“And when he said that, I cried, and I put it in my phone because I knew it was an idea,” Brandy recalls. “But I cried because I’d felt that way. Like, ‘Man, I’d love to be who somebody thought I was,’ you know? It can really be anything. I’d like to be who my dogs think I am, on most days. But yeah — it started with John Prine and ended with me. The next day, we went in and wrote it.”

“Who You Thought I Was” Lyrics

I used to wanna be a cowboy
A shadow in a sunset
That’s why I started smokin’ cigarettes
I used to wanna be a cowboy
I used to wanna be Elvis
Drive a pink Cadillac car
That’s why I learned to play the guitar
I used to wanna be Elvis
There’s a lot of things I used to wanna do ’til I met you
Now I wanna be honest
Now I wanna be better
Now I wanna be the me I should’ve been
When we were together
I wanna be at least
Almost close to worth your love
I wanna be who
You thought I wasI used to wanna join the circus
Hang around with the freak show
Wish I’d learned to walk a tight rope
I used to wanna join the circus

Used to wanna stay eighteen
I used to wanna an airstream
With a lawn chair tumbleweed view
Now I just want you

And I wanna be honest
Now I wanna be better
I wanna be the me I should’ve been
When we were together
I wanna be at least
Almost close to worth your love
I wanna be who
You thought I was

There’s a lot of things I used to wanna be
Til you stopped lovin’ me

Now I wanna be steady
I wanna be forever
Now I wanna be the me I could’ve been
When we were together
I wanna be at least
Almost close to worth your love
I wanna be who
You thought I was

Yeah, I wanna be who
You thought I was
