Here at Keepin’ it Country we love to introduce our readers to fantastic, undiscovered talent in country music. In Candi Carpenter‘s case, however, she’s been getting attention from all the right people for all the right reasons. The singer-songwriter has received praise from Little Jimmy Dickens, Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers, and even Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers. Candi left her Michigan school at a young age to follow her passion in Music City, opening for legends like Loretta Lynn, Vince Gill, Porter Wagner, Bill Anderson and Little Jimmy Dickens. She’s learned to play guitar, harmonica, and even yodel!
Candi might be recognized from her appearances in Alan Jackson‘s “Too Much Of A Good Thing,” Kid Rock‘s “All Summer Long,” or as the guitar player in Brooks & Dunn‘s “Put A Girl In It” music videos. She’s a rising star and country fans are about to hear a lot about her pretty soon. Get to know Candi here with us at Keepin’ it Country before she hits it big.
“Candi happens to be one of my favorite people in country music. She has it all.” – Little Jimmy Dickens
