Belmont alumna and singer-songwriter-guitarist Clare Dunn has recently signed with Universal Music Group Nashville (UMGN). Joining Belmont alumnus Josh Turner, UMGN is home to many of Nashville’s top country artists.
A 2011 songwriting graduate of Belmont, Dunn has opened for artists including Florida Georgia Line, Kieth Urban and Luke Bryan. She will open for Bob Seger this week.
Prior to coming to Belmont for college, Dunn grew up in southeast Colorado where she worked cattle and drove tractors for her family’s farm. To pay her way through school, Dunn worked harvest and drove a silage truck through Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska on school breaks. Dunn signed her first publishing deal after graduation, and since then, she has written with Will Hoge, Marshall Altman and Hillary Lindsey, among others.
