Mary Chapin Carpenter will embark on a series of headline dates this fall, including a special headline show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium with special guest John Paul White on September 23. See below for complete tour details.

The performances will feature material from throughout Carpenter’s acclaimed career, including songs from her most recent album, The Things That We Are Made Of. Released last year to widespread acclaim on Lambent Light Records via Thirty Tigers (webstore, iTunes, Amazon), the album was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton) and features eleven new songs written by Carpenter.

The Associated Press calls it, “…an evocative collection of songs,” while The Huffington Post declares, “…Carpenter is now at the height of her musical career, painting a compelling, relevant piece of art tinged with mixed feelings of grief and joy, all without preaching or darkening our minds with sadness.” Additionally, NPR Music featured the album in their “First Listen” series.

Most recently, Carpenter collaborated with Peter Wolf for a special duet of “Cry No More.” Their rendition of the song is featured on Amazon’s Valentine’s Day playlist. Listen here.

Over the course of her career, Carpenter has recorded 14 albums and sold over 14 million records. Beloved by fans and critics alike, she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations) and is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Previously, in 2014, Carpenter released her debut orchestral album, Songs From The Movie, which was arranged and co-produced by six-time Grammy winner Vince Mendoza. Since it’s release, Carpenter has performed alongside the New York Philharmonic, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the London Concert Orchestra, the L.A. Philharmonic and the National Symphony Orchestra among many others.
