Read more about the memoir via a press release below:
In Broken Horses, Brandi Carlile takes readers through the events of her life that have shaped her very raw art—from her impoverished childhood in a dysfunctional but loving family, to her first break opening for Dave Matthews Band, to many sleepless tours over fifteen years and six studio albums with long-time collaborators Phil and Tim Hanseroth, while raising two children with her wife, Catherine Carlile, along the way. This hard-won success has led her to collaborations with personal heroes like Elton John, Dolly Parton, Mavis Staples, Pearl Jam, Tanya Tucker, and Joni Mitchell, as well as her peers in the supergroup The Highwomen, and ultimately to the Grammy stage, where she converted millions of viewers into instant fans.
Evocative and piercingly honest, Broken Horses is at once an examination of faith through the eyes of a person rejected by the church and a meditation on the moments and lyrics that have shaped the life of a creative mind, a brilliant artist, and a genuine empath on a mission to give back.
