Biography

American musician, singer, songwriter and recording artist. The daughter of a Life magazine executive, she spent part of her early life in Japan. She grew up with a love of contemporary pop music with some interest in country and folk, playing guitar. She took her University degree in American Civilization.

In 1986, Carpenter won a talent night competition and became a local star, winning awards and gigs before signing a major label in Nashville and making her first record. She kept performing in bars, drinking and gaining experience, steadily increasing her popularity.

Notable as a songwriter, her material was picked up by top artists for performances. Her hit in 1992, "I Feel Lucky," plus a strong country album, "Come On, Come On" put her in the role of a top new star in country music. The strawberry-blonde performer was voted CMA's Female Vocalist of the Year, 2/1992.
