Hire Mary Chapin Carpenter:
GRAMMY award-winning Mary Chapin Carpenter is an American country and folk music singer-songwriter. Carpenter’s first album, 1987’s Hometown Girl, did not produce any charting singles. She broke through with 1989’s State of the Heart and 1990’s Shooting Straight in the Dark.

Her third Columbia album was 1990’s Shooting Straight in the Dark. “Down at the Twist and Shout”, which featured instrumentation from Cajun band BeauSoleil, peaked at number two in 1991. Released last from the album was the top-20 hit “Going Out Tonight”. Folk singer Shawn Colvin, with whom Carpenter would collaborate again a number of times, sang duet vocals on the closing track, “The Moon and St. Christopher”.

Her most successful album is 1992’s Come On Come On, which accounted for seven singles and was certified quadruple platinum in the United States for shipments of four million copies.
