Reflecting on her new album, The Dirt and The Stars, Mary Chapin Carpenter quotes the writer Margaret Renkl, “We are all in the process of becoming,” Carpenter describes the songs as coming from places of pain and self-illumination but also places of joy, discovery, and the rewards of self- knowledge. With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” 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.
Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has sold more than15 million records. In 2020, Carpenter released The Dirt and The Stars in August and One Night Lonely, which was recorded live without an audience at the legendary Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Virginia during the COVID-19 shut down. She also shared “Songs from Home,” a virtual concert series which has been viewed over 10 million times.
