When Mary Chapin Carpenter comes to SVMF on Aug. 10 her audiences will be treated to a special night of music from her soon-to-be released album, Sometimes Just The Sky.
The album is a celebration of her acclaimed 30-year recording career, featuring new versions of Carpenter’s most beloved songs as well as one newly written song, which became the title track.
Carpenter broke onto the country music scene in 1987 with Hometown Girl, and then other albums followed, spawning a string of hit singles, including “Passionate Kisses,” “Shut Up and Kiss Me,” “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” “I Take My Chances,” and “Down at the Twist and Shout.”
An accomplished singer-songwriter, Carpenter has sold more than 14 million records in addition to winning four Grammy Awards for Best Country Vocal Performance and one for Best Country Album for her album Stones in the Road. Carpenter has also garnered two CMA Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and is one of only 15 female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
