Mary Chapin Carpenter’s new album is celebration of her acclaimed 30-year recording career, the landmark record features new versions of some of Carpenter’s most beloved songs as well as one newly written song, which became the title track.
Produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Paul McCartney, Ray LaMontagne), the 13-track album was recorded entirely live at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios outside Bath, England. Joined by long-time collaborator Duke Levine on guitar and a handpicked band of Johns’ favorite musicians, Carpenter reimagined one song from each of her twelve studio albums along with "Sometimes Just The Sky."
Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has sold over 14 million records. With hits like "Passionate Kisses" and "He Thinks He’ll Keep Her," she 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.
In celebration of the release, Carpenter will embark on a North American tour later in the year.
Tour dates to be announced soon.
