Having moved to music city USA when she was only 15, Candi Carpenter wrote this song “Cry Baby” which was inspired by her first few months in Nashville. The song let’s Candi show off her strong and powerful vocals pours her heart into her music.
From the first note to the last, Carpenter is a breathe of fresh air. The most pure country voice I’ve heard since Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline. The way she hits high notes is dreamlike that makes the hairs on your neck stand. The video, shot in a room with purple lighting helps set the mood for the tune as Ms. Carpenter performs the song with her band in the back. Singing right into the mic, out front of the camera makes the viewer feel the song more than hear it. Carpenters lavish timbre voice is without a doubt the best thing to hit Nashville in year. The song is complete with guitar and petal steel to give a dynamic melody.

“I write my best songs when men piss me off,” says Candi Carpenter, whose fiery first single, “Burn The Bed” tells the story of a scorned woman’s cheating husband. Her aching, soulful voice has drawn comparisons to Janis Joplin and Patsy Cline, while critics have dubbed her “the modern Loretta Lynn” of country songwriting.
“A lot of people say I have a crazy story,” she says. “Maybe I do, but I think we’re all messed up in our own way. That’s why I write about the bad, the ugly, and the good that makes it all worthwhile. The hurt, and the healing, and everything in between.”
