Grammy Award winner, Mary Chapin Carpenter performs at Paramount

As part of The Paramount Theatre's most exciting and diverse season to date, they welcome Country Music star, Mary Chapin Carpenter, on Thursday, September 13 at 8 p.m. Mary is one of more than two-dozen nationally recognized and internationally touring headlining acts taking to The Paramount stage in downtown Rutland through May 2013.

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 and two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals. Her songs speak to the most personal of life's details and the most universal.

Ashes and Roses is the follow-up to Carpenter's Grammy-nominated 2010 release, The Age of Miracles, which debuted at No. 28 on the Billboard 200 and No.1 on the Billboard Folk chart. The release also received widespread critical acclaim -- the Hartford Courant describes the album as, "...equal parts timely and timeless," while The Huffington Post asserts, "Carpenter writes songs that are nuanced and fully three-dimensional. It's music for the soul..."

"Bringing the very best in live entertainment to the central Vermont community is not only our responsibility but our passion." explained Eric Mallette, Programming Director.
