It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned her in writing. Still, she’s never far from my mind, as her music dominates my iTunes playlist. She is– and has been for years– my single favorite songwriter and musical performer of all time. As I’ve often said and still believe, she’s wonderful therapy– much less expensive that you’ll pay by the hour no doubt!
As such, I’m always delighted to read about Mary Chapin Carpenter in the news. Such coverage assures me she’s active, performing, and hopefully hard at work on her next album. I simply wish the East Coast “Hometown Girl” would pay a visit to California once in a while. In the meantime, her “intellectually powerful” music lives on!
