Over the course of her 30-year acclaimed career, Mary Chapin Carpenter has sold more than 15 million records; won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, and two Academy of Country Music awards; and is one of the only 15 female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Her songs speak to the most personal of life’s details and the most universal. Carpenter's most recent release, Sometimes Just the Sky, celebrates her career and features new versions of some of her most beloved songs, plus one newly penned track.

More about Mary Chapin Carpenter:

Carpenter tours this summer in support of her new full-length album, produced by Ethan Johns and recorded at the U.K.’s Real World Studios, to be released in early summer. The forthcoming project is Carpenter's first album of new material in five years.

Most recently, Carpenter released a new single, Our Man Walter Cronkite, co-produced by Jamie Mefford (Gregory Alan Isakov, Nathaniel Rateliff) and recorded at Colorado Sound Studios. Of the song, Carpenter shares, “Growing up, Walter Cronkite was in our house Monday through Friday, presenting the news as The Most Trusted Man In America, as he was known in his time. My parents raised us to believe that people in jobs like Cronkite's told the truth; they raised us to believe in a world that reaches out to those who need help, that does not turn away from those less fortunate, or homeless, or those forced to leave their country because of the threat of violence, poverty and persecution. It’s a different time now. I miss my parents, and I miss Walter Cronkite.”
