Brandi Carlile’s ‘Broken Horses’ Book Tour Features Dolly Parton
To mark the release of Broken Horses’ upcoming memoir, singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile will take part in a series of conversations with everyone from Dolly Parton to Leslie Jordan as part of a virtual tour. Other conversations will include former White House photographer Pete Souza, writers Glennon Doyle and Tara Westover, and radio personality Hunter Kelley.
Carlile will sit down for her virtual chat with Dolly Parton on April 8, an event hosted by Nashville’s Parnassus Books. Tickets for the event cost $ 33 and include a signed copy of Carlile’s memoir.
Carlile’s memoir promises to be an overview of the singer’s performance in Washington and to rise to popularity in recent years with the release of the 2018 pioneering hit By the Way, I Forgive You.
“If anyone ever has a doubt in their mind that the wildest dreams can come true from complicated circumstances,” Elton John wrote in a noise promoted by Broken Horses, “they should read Brady’s story.”
Last week, Carlile presented her first live show with her full band since the beginning of the pandemic at the Ryman Auditorium, with extremely limited number of vaccinated fans who can attend in person. On the show, Carlile brought R&B singer Monica to a duet at Highwomen’s “Crowded Table”.
