The Things That We Are Made Of is Mary Chapin Carpenter's superb new album. It captures a specific and relatable stage in life — a characteristic of Carpenter's music throughout 14 albums (which have earned her five Grammys and two CMA Awards). She worked on the new record with producer extraordinaire Dave Cobb, who is riding high with albums by Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell and many others. In this session, hear Carpenter talk music and life and perform onstage at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
