Mary Chapin Carpenter is launching an extensive tour this summer that features a series of headline performances including a special concert at Wolf Trap on Aug. 22, as well as a run of shows with Sugarland as part of their There Goes The Neighborhood Tour 2020. Additionally, in April, Carpenter will resume her intimate duo shows with longtime friend and collaborator Shawn Colvin. Those newly-announced shows will kick off April 3 at Clearwater, Florida’s Capitol Theatre and will span through April 11 at Chattanooga’s Walker Theatre.

The tours support Carpenter’s new full-length album, which was produced by Ethan Johns and will be released this Spring. The project is Carpenter’s first album of new material in five years, and she recently released a new single, “Our Man Walter Cronkite,” from it.

“Growing up, Walter Cronkite was in our house Monday through Friday, presenting the news as The Most Trusted Man In America, as he was known in his time,” said Carpenter. “My parents raised us to believe that people in jobs like Cronkite’s told the truth; they raised us to believe in a world that reaches out to those who need help, that does not turn away from those less fortunate, or homeless, or those forced to leave their country because of the threat of violence, poverty and persecution. The arms were there to hold them, the eyes to see them, and the hearts of the world were there to love them. Because that was the right thing. It’s a different time now. I miss my parents, and I miss Walter Cronkite.”
