June 12, 2023—5x GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Mary Chapin Carpenter will embark on an extensive tour this fall with her longtime friend, Shawn Colvin.

The newly confirmed tour includes stops at Fort Lauderdale’s Amaturo Theater, Birmingham’s Lyric Theatre, Atlanta’s Buckhead Theatre, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theater, Evanston’s Cahn Auditorium, Minneapolis’ Pantages Theater and Ithaca’s State Theatre among many others.

Full details can be found at

Over the course of her renowned career, Carpenter has sold over 16 million records. With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” she has won five GRAMMY Awards (with 18 nominations), two CMA awards, two ACM awards and is one of only fifteen female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Additionally, Carpenter’s most recent release, One Night Lonely (Live), was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 2022 GRAMMY Awards. A rare solo performance, the album was recorded at Carpenter’s favorite venue, Virginia’s legendary Wolf Trap (where she will return on August 26 with special guest Dawes), and features songs from across her acclaimed career including several from her latest studio album, The Dirt And The Stars. A DVD of the live concert, which premiered on PBS, is also available here.

Shawn Colvin won her first GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, Steady On, in 1989. She has been a mainstay of the contemporary folk music scene ever since, releasing twelve superlative albums and establishing herself as an enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. Colvin triumphed at the 1998 GRAMMY Awards, winning both Record and Song of the Year for “Sunny Came Home.” Her inspiring and candid memoir, Diamond In The Rough, was published in 2012. Shawn was recently recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association. Presenting her with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt. Said Raitt, “She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard— and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist… She was groundbreaking when she emerged and continues to inspire me and the legions of fans and other singer/songwriters coming up in her wake.”
