CMC are pleased to present Three-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, touring in April 2020, with headline shows in Melbourne on April 6 and Sydney April 8. She’s had a landmark year, touring in celebration of her GRAMMY Award winning album, By The Way, I Forgive You, co-producing Tanya Tucker’s critically acclaimed new album and releasing the debut album for the collaborative movement The Highwomen with fellow members Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby.
Attendees of the tour will see why Carlile’s performance of her song “The Joke” on the live GRAMMY broadcast was hailed by the New York Times as, “an uncomplicated, genuine, cleansing thrill.” Her vocals, which they describe as, “robust, ragged, full of sneer and hope” are sure to impress whether you’re a long time fan or just discovering this powerhouse of the country genre.
Over the course of their acclaimed career, Carlile and her band have released six albums, including 2017’s Cover Stories: Brandi Carlile Celebrates 10 Years of the Story (An Album to Benefit War Child), which features 14 artists covering the songs on their breakthrough album The Story with all proceeds benefiting War Child. Artists included on the acclaimed project, which Rolling Stone calls, “tender and powerful,” include Dolly Parton, Adele, Pearl Jam, Kris Kristofferson, The Avett Brothers, Margo Price and Jim James as well as a foreward written by President Obama.
