Despite having not garnered the same mainstream commercial success as some of her Nashville peers, this hasn't stopped the Grammy-winning country music star from being dubbed by many as one of America's finest singer-songwriters. Having been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2012, she's on the road again and bringing her brand of folk and rock-influenced country music to these shores.

After coming to the attention of Columbia Records in the 1980s through demo tapes released with now longtime collaborator John Jennings, the New Jersey-born star's soft, rootsy, feminist material contributed to her gaining a cult following and three top-ten singles, despite a lack of radio airtime. However, it wasn't until 1992's certified quadruple platinum breakthrough record Come On Come On that she'd consistently reach the upper echelons of the country music charts, with the album producing seven hit singles.
After continued success in the 90s, she went on to release Time* Sex* Love* in 2001, marking a significant departure thematically and musically from her earlier work. Whilst still boasting all the lyrical-depth fans had grown to love, her work became far more politicised lyrically and fearless creatively. Her lack of fear when it comes to breaking new ground musically has now become her calling-card - this is perhaps typified best by 2014's Songs From The Movie, a symphonic orchestral reinvention of her classic songs in conjunction with a 63-piece orchestra, 15-voice choir and renowned composer/producer Vince Mendoza. Naturally, this fearlessness can also be seen in her live shows, so get your Mary Chapin Carpenter tickets from StubHub UK today to see this landmark artist for yourself.
