Carrie Newcomer sees life with great clarity.

After releasing 13 albums, touring with Alison Krauss and Union Station, and being named one of the 50 most influential folk musicians in the past 50 years, she still enjoys writing music more than anything else.

All the wonderful things that flow from that are a bonus.
