Ashes and Roses is the new album from acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter on Zoë/Rounder Records. On this, her twelfth studio recording, Carpenter continues to produce writing that is nearly peerless in the way her compositions dig deep into the various extremes of experience. Highlights include the track "Soul Companion," which features a special duet with James Taylor. Of the album, Carpenter notes, "Ashes and Roses speaks to a personal journey that included the end of a marriage, the loss of a parent and a life altering illness. The songs attempt to describe what I saw, felt and experienced along the way." Recorded in Nashville, the 13-track album was produced by Carpenter and long-time collaborator Matt Rollings (Lyle Lovett, Keith Urban) and recorded and mixed by Chuck Ainlay (Mark Knopfler, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson). Over the course of her career, Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards and has sold over 13 million records.
