midweek music: “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her”

Mary Chapin Carpenter was part of a wave of women country music stars in the 1990s along with Nanci Griffith, Roseanne Cash, Shawn Colvin, and many others. One of my favorites of hers is “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her” from her 1992 album Come On, Come On.

This live performance is superb, as she’s backed up by Emmylou Harris, Kathy Mattea, Trisha Yearwood, Pam Tillis, Patty Loveless, and Suzy Bogguss. The harmonies on the last chorus are just amazing.
