It’s been more than two years since Mary Chapin Carpenter, multi-Grammy winner and former CMA Female Vocalist of the year, released an album. But, as she recently told Country Weekly magazine, the good stuff’s worth waiting for. “I want my music to be pure,” she noted. “We all want our music to come from some inspirational place. We don’t want to have to do it on demand.” Carpenter is planning to release a compilation album in the spring which will feature some of her biggest hits plus work she’s done for other soundtrack and tribute albums.
