Critics have praised Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin for their heartfelt lyrics and pristine vocals--traits which garnered both artists Grammy Awards in the 1990s. In addition to successful careers as solo artists, the pair has also maintained a close friendship spanning more than 30 years.
Now, the two musicians share the stage on a special acoustic tour that lands in Boise Thursday, April 25. Armed with guitars and microphones, Carpenter and Colvin sing many of their career-defining songs as duets but also bring to life their subtle differences with alternating solos.
A setlist from the pair's Birmingham, Ala., performance included classics like Colvin's "Sunny Came Home," and Carpenter's timeless "He Thinks He'll Keep Her."
