Year in Review: So, How Was Your 2020, Brandi Carlile?
So, How Was Your 2020? is a series in which our favorite entertainers answer our questionnaire about the music, culture and memorable moments that shaped their year. We’ll be rolling these pieces out throughout December.
Brandi Carlile had been riding a wave of successes in early 2020 when the pandemic hit. Her album By the Way, I Forgive You helped her win three Grammys, she joined the supergroup the Highwomen to record an album, and oversaw the triumphant return of Tanya Tucker on While I’m Livin’ all in the space of a couple years.
Being off the road for the first time in ages forced Carlile to slow down, spend more time with her family, and work on other projects. One of those is her new memoir Broken Horses, which will be released in April 2021. In our year-end survey, Carlile tells us about getting a new boat and why Joni Mitchell is a go-to source of comfort.
