Brandi Carlile says she has another book in the works
Brandi Carlile is working hard on a second book. The singer-songwriter shared the news in a recent interview with Billboard.
âIt turns out I love long-form writing,â Carlile told the magazine. “It brought me to a new place in my life that I closed myself off after not finishing high school, and it makes me feel capable in a way that I didn’t know I was before.”
Carlile’s announcement follows the publication of her two recent memoirs, Broken horses, and a new album, In these days of silence. After debuting on October 1, the record reached number 1 on Billboard‘s Americana / Folk Albums chart, and topped the Top Rock Albums and Tastemaker Albums charts.
Carlile says that working on Broken horses during the COVID-19 pandemic led to the creation of In these days of silence, so it’s no surprise that his creative chain reaction continues with another project.
“[Broken Horses] was almost written when the world stopped, âshe explains. âI remember pressing send on that last chapter, shutting down the computer and walking straight to the piano – I didn’t even leave the room – and writing ‘Throwing Good After Bad’. And I knew I was writing an album.
Carlile did not reveal more details about his new book project. She says that although she is currently working there, she “can’t say much about it”.
Carlile was named Artist of the Year at the 2021 Americana Honors & Awards in September. She also won six Grammy Awards, most recently in the Best Country Song category, in 2021, for âCrowded Table,â which she recorded alongside her fellow Highwomen.
