Brandi Carlile Details Journey From Poverty To Grammy Stage In Upcoming New Memoir

Brandi Carlile is opening up about the life lessons that shaped her as an artist in a candid new memoir, Broken Horses, due out April 6.

The five-time Grammy award–winning singer, songwriter, performer, and producer examines a life shaped by music in this heartfelt and intimate story that will be published in both hardcover and digital formats by Crown, along with an audio edition of the book, read by the author, simultaneously released by Penguin Random House Audio.

In Broken Horses, Carlile takes readers through the events of her life from her impoverished childhood in a dysfunctional but loving family, to her first break opening for Dave Matthews Band, to many sleepless tours over 15 years and six studio albums with long-time collaborators Phil and Tim Hanseroth — all while raising two children with her wife, Catherine Carlile, along the way.
