EDITORS’ NOTES

Mary Chapin Carpenter exudes hard-won calm and wisdom on her 14th album, a set of gorgeous Americana tracks that serve as a memoir. She charts her journey to thick layers of guitar on the upbeat "Map of My Heart” and details small but impactful memories on the poignant, string-swept ballad "Hand on My Back." Producer Dave Cobb lets her evocative lyrics and delicate croons lead the way, and the slight acoustic picks and Telecasters wobbling softly underneath seem to echo Carpenter's own wistful musings.
