About this Episode

Brandi Carlile speaks with host Beth Behrs about spirituality and wisdom found through horses and nature, performing the album 'Blue' for Joni Mitchell, the joy and connection of live music, and singing with Dolly Parton at the Newport Folk Festival.

To a lot of folks, the first time they heard of Brandi Carlile was during her showstopping performance of "The Joke" at the 2019 Grammy awards. Brandi walked away with three trophies that night for her record 'By The Way, I Forgive You' (including Best Americana Album), but she's been honing her distinctive voice and building a dedicated audience for over twenty years, all the while staying committed to building a family and community with her band and team.

That commitment has made her the godmother of modern American roots music - as a curator of festival stages, interpreter of the legendary artists who came before, and producer and collaborator for a whole new generation of female artists.
