New Music Spotlight: The Henningsens – “American Beautiful”

The names Aaron, Brian, and Clara Henningsen might not mean much to you at first.  The fact that they are a songwriting family from a small Central Illinois farm might also not be that impressive either.  But when you learn this family wrote two of the biggest hits, including a number one record for The Band Perry in “All Your Life” and “You Lie”, you realize you’re dealing with some major talent here.

The Henningsens are Aaron (Dad), Brian (oldest son), and Clara (daugher) on lead vocals, and have already had eight of their songs recorded by major artists before signing a recording deal to record their own material with Arista Nashville last year.  Splitting their time between the Henningsen family farm in Illinois and their home away from home South of Nashville keeps them busy beyond anything they would have imagined just a couple short years ago. Their own artistry is taking off in 2011, showcasing Clara’s powerful vocal abilities coupled with Brian and Aaron’s tight family harmony. Their unusual lyrical formulations keep audiences on their toes and spell bound. Look for them to do something big in 2011 and beyond. They are just getting started!

Check out the video below for an introduction to The Henningsens, and keep listening to 99.5 WYCD for their debut single, “American Beautiful.”
