New Music from Candi Carpenter

Emerging artist Candi Carpenter is asking all of life's big questions in her latest single.

"The Astronaut", co-written by Carpenter, John Caldwell, and Alden Witt, finds Carpenter wondering what life would be like if she believed in herself more.

Do I deserve a greater purpose / Or am I just nervous / I'm gonna disappear when I die / All I know is / I will never know why.

Carpenter's brilliant vocals on the track are accompanied by Brandi Carlile. Along with providing background harmonies, Carlile also produced the song.

Carpenter had the opportunity to perform "The Astronaut" at The Grand Ole Opry as part of the Dolly Parton tribute. Continue below to hear the full song.
