Up-and-Coming Country Music Star Brittney Spencer
Country singer-songwriter Brittney Spencer is making a name for herself in Nashville. She earned a spot in the "Next Women of Country" class from CMT (a division of ViacomCBS), and she's on the Spotify and Pandora "Artists to Watch" lists. And she doesn't even have a record deal yet. In October, Spencer shared a cover of The Highwomen's hit "Crowded Table" on Twitter, and it got the attention of two band members, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires, who invited her to tour and write with them. Brittney Spencer talks to Anthony Mason about her parents' support, writing and performing while working a full-time job, being a Black artist in Nashville, and more.
