The Age of Miracles

One of my favorite artists put out a new album last week - Mary Chapin Carpenter. Her songs so often feel like they were written just for me; that she was able to get inside of my head and take the thoughts and turn them into these amazing songs whose lyrics not only define, but inspire me.

Most people know Mary Chapin Carpenter for her work in the early 1990's, songs like "Passionate Kisses" and "I Feel Lucky" I love those songs too - but it is really her later work that I find myself going back to over and over again.

This week's release is no different - how many artists can write a song from the point of few of one of the members of the Chinese military at Tiananmen Square and make you see the event from a completely new view this many years later.

MCC isn't an artist you are going to hear on the radio - but if you take the time to search out her work, you'll never be sorry.

Here is a cut from her new album "The Age of Miracles."
