Mary Chapin Carpenter 

When: Sat., Aug. 25, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $25-45

A country-folk artist like Mary Chapin Carpenter is the type Nashville usually ignores. Earnest, smart and distinctive, Carpenter's no Nice 'n Easy hair model. She arrived on the same wave that brought Lyle Lovett and Nanci Griffith to Nashville and enjoyed steady chart success during the early '90s. She eventually balked at Nashville's demands and left the majors for her last three efforts; she's since become a durable artist with a dedicated following. Her songs have grown increasingly literate and personal while generally drifting toward adult contemporary, though not inexorably. On 2007's The Calling, she broke out her electric guitar, demonstrating an ability to still surprise 25 years later.—Chris Parker
