Almost Time For Carpenter

Slated to hit country radio in April, Mary Chapin Carpenter’s long-awaited single release “Almost Home” was penned by Carpenter, Annie Roboff and Beth Nielsen Chapman, both of whom penned the Faith Hill monster hit “This Kiss.” Dixie Chicks gals Emily Erwin and Martie Sidel recently showed up to root Carpenter on at a radio showcase in Nashville, where Vince Gill joined Mary Chapin on stage to play guitar — not sing — only in Music City.
