Mary Chapin Carpenter Makes Surprise Visit to Grand Ole Opry

Mary Chapin Carpenter made a surprise visit to the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium on Friday night (July 16). Introduced by Marty Stuart, Carpenter sang her 1992 hit, “I Feel Lucky,” as well as “The Way I Feel,” from her new album, The Age of Miracles. Later that night, Carpenter’s own two-hour concert at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC), just a few blocks away, included several new songs and many of her hits, such as “Right Now,” “Down at the Twist and Shout,” “I Feel Lucky,” “Passionate Kisses,” “The Hard Way,” “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” “I Take My Chances” and “Shut Up and Kiss Me.”
