Five-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician Mary Chapin Carpenter is nominated for Best Folk Album at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards for her record, One Night Lonely (Live), which premiered on PBS over the summer.

A rare solo performance, One Night Lonely (Live) was recorded last November at Carpenter's favorite venue, Virginia's legendary Wolf Trap, 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 at PBS earlier this summer, is also now available.

Of the project, Carpenter reflects, "Strange yet magical, those are my words to describe the feeling of being alone on this hometown stage at Wolf Trap. I was struck by the stillness of the empty seats and the lonely echo of all this space. While I missed seeing the audience and feeling that connection, I was so grateful for the opportunity to play a show during the pandemic shut down." 

Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has sold over 15 million records. With hits like "Passionate Kisses" and "He Thinks He'll Keep Her," she has won five Grammy Awards (with 16 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards and is one of only fifteen female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
