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
"Bringing the very best in live entertainment to the central
Vermont community is not only our responsibility but our passion."
