Living the southern lifestyle in Lansing Michigan, artist Candi Carpenter become obsessed with country music as a child. Following in the footsteps of her hero Dolly Parton, Candi made the move to Nashville at the age of fifteen. With the stage as her classroom Candi began performing at every bar and honky tonk dive around.
Now Candi writes music of her own, often oversharing personal details of herself which ultimately bring her closer to her fans. Hoping her music reminds her listeners that they are not alone, Candi’s music is easy to relate to. Working with Sony Music Global and CTK Management Candi is excited to build a fanbase of her own.
For now you can catch Candi performing with the Song Suffragettes. In fact Candi was asked to collaborate on the empowering hit Time's Up which was written by fellow Song Suffragette Kalie Shorr. Reflecting on her journey with the Song Suffragettes, Candi says “I’ve learned that if we want to see more women at the top of the charts, we have to support, love, and champion one another without jealousy. Let’s celebrate our differences, and what makes our music unique. Armies can accomplish a lot more than one lone warrior. We are an army of girls with guitars.”
In the future Candi wants to continue writing new music and eventually host an episode of her favorite show, Saturday Night Live. So find Candi’s music via YouTube and follow her on social media @CandiCarpenter.
I am currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles as a marketing major. Upon realizing that I wanted to change the way people perceive country music and to help women have a voice, I began Next Women of Country in 2015 promoting new female artists and sharing their stories with the world.
