Candi Carpenter Releases Cover of Dolly Parton’s “Little Sparrow” Produced by Brandi Carlile
Talk about some country girl power!! Today country cutie Candi Carpenter released her cover of the Dolly Parton classic, “Little Sparrow”. If that wasn’t enough, the song was produced by Brandi Carlile.
“Candi’s voice is powerful and haunting,” says Carlile. “Her version of ‘Little Sparrow’ is emotionally compelling and chill-inducing. It is a privilege to produce such a talented and driven artist.”
“‘Little Sparrow’ is one of Dolly’s most poignant and heartbreaking songs,” says Carpenter. “I guess you could say I’ve always seen reflections of my own story in the lyrics. Brandi likes to record live, and our final version is the first take we tracked, vocals and all. Her production has a cinematic depth and southern gothic quality that’s pure magic. I feel like she really understands the way I see the world.”
Candi Carpenter got to perform the cover live and was taped for the Dolly Parton: 50 Years At The Grand Ole Opry special airing on NBC tonight from 9-11pm EST.
