1:25 Mary Chapin Carpenter

The soul survives its adventures. That's one of five time Grammy winner Mary Chapin Carpenter 's favorite quotes. And she has survived the loss of her parents, divorce, health scares and 30 years in the music industry. Her 14th album, The Things That We Are Made Of  is a celebration of what the entertainment industry generally condemns: middle age. She's never really left the music scene after setting a record for winning four consecutive Grammys as top female country vocalist in the 90's and the songs on this album take stock of where she's been, events in the world today and the wisdom acquired on the way.  

1:35 Floorball Championships
