Mary Chapin Carpenter has recorded 12 albums and has sold over 13 million records. With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals and was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in October of 2012. Her songs speak to the most personal of life’s details and the most universal. Ashes and Roses, the newest album from Carpenter, was released June 12, 2012. This is Carpenter’s twelfth studio album and features a special duet with James Taylor on the track “Soul Companion.”

Shawn Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, including two for the hit single “Sunny Came Home,” and has been nominated for another seven. She has released eight albums, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures and created a remarkable canon of work. In June 2012, Colvin released her eighth studio album, All Fall Down. Recorded in Nashville and produced by Buddy Miller, it features a group of stellar musicians including Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Bill Frisell, and Jakob Dylan.
