Brandy Clark has accomplished yet another lifelong dream. The singer-songwriter made her debut appearance on NBC's 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Monday (March 24).

“Performing on ‘Ellen’ was a bucket list item for me, and I was thrilled to be there,” the singer-songwriter says. “I appreciate her support of new artists and music from all genres, and hope to have the opportunity to return to her show some day.”

In addition to penning songs for dozens of artists, including Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker and many others, Clark also released her own album, '12 Stories,' last year.

"I hope it will hit as many ears as possible," Clark tells The Boot of her goal for the record. "But more than hitting ears, I hope it will hit a lot of hearts. My goal as a writer is always to write songs that people who aren’t songwriters would write, if they were songwriters. So I hope that’s what this record will do. I hope that someone who’s in Middle America taking their kids to school, and going and working at a bank or a grocery store, will say, 'That’s my song.' That’s what I really hope."
