With hits like "Passionate Kisses" and "He Thinks He’ll Keep Her," Mary Chapin Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards and is one of only fifteen female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

With special guest EMILY BARKER.

MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER
Over the course of her acclaimed career, Mary Chapin Carpenter has sold over 15 million records.

In 2020, Carpenter released two albums - "The Dirt And The Stars" in August 2020, and "One Night Lonely," recorded live without an audience at the legendary Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Virginia during the COVID-19 shut down - in addition to sharing "Songs From Home," a virtual concert series which has been viewed over 10 million times.


Of the new album "The Dirt And The Stars," produced by Ethan Johns (Ray LaMontagne, Paul McCartney, Kings of Leon) and recorded entirely live at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Bath in southwest England, Carpenter quotes the writer Margaret Renkl:

" ‘We are all in the process of becoming.’ That doesn’t stop at a certain age. To be always a student of art and music and life, as she says, that, to me, is what makes life worth living. The songs are very personal and they’re difficult in some ways, and definitely come from places of pain and self-illumination, but also places of joy, discovery and the rewards of self-knowledge.

They arrived from looking outward as much as inward, speaking to life changes, growing older, politics, compassion, #metoo, heartbreak, empathy, the power of memory, time and place. So, I suppose I could say there are many themes, but they all come back to that initial truth that we are all constantly ‘becoming’ through art and expression."

Presented by True Endeavors.
