Mary Chapin Carpenter - stones in the road

Mary Chapin Carpenter's fifth album was one of her more commercial releases and indeed has been her only country chart #1 to date. You can see why though with songs of the calibre on the album, such as the infectious and catchy "House of cards" and the reflective and nostalgic title track.

The big hit "Shut up and kiss me" is a stylish hoe-down but like the rest of the album expertly combines mainstream accessibility with intelligence and style. Sometimes the majority are right and they were with this modern album.
