Chambers is presenting Storybook as the “musical accompaniment” to her autobiography “A Little Bird Told Me,” which was published by Harper Collins in Australia. Described as a tribute to artists who inspired her, the album includes Chambers covering songs by Gram Parsons, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, John Prine, Suzanne Vega and Townes Van Zandt.
“This album is a collection of songs and tributes to artists who have influenced me from when I was a small child up until now,” Chambers said. “I can honestly say that I would not be who I am today without the music from these incredible singer/songwriters and their inspiration.”
Some shows are already on sale. Head on over to KaseyChambers.com for more information.
