Grammy Award Winner Brandi Carlile Coming to the Peoria Civic Center
PEORIA – Three-time Grammy Award winning artist Brandi Carlile plays the Peoria Civic Center Theater on Saturday, August 3 at 8:00 pm.
Over the course of their acclaimed career, Carlile and her band have released six albums, including 2015’s The Firewatcher’s Daughter, which garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album. Additionally, in 2017, they released Cover Stories: Brandi Carlile Celebrates 10 Years of the Story (An Album to Benefit War Child), which features 14 artists covering the songs on their breakthrough album The Story with all proceeds benefiting War Child
. Her current album By The Way, I Forgive You won this year’s Grammy Award for Best Americana Album.
“By The Way, I Forgive You is not an album about forgiveness in the easy sense—where someone has hurt you and then suddenly there’s a great reconciliation and a remorse-filled scene with two people running across the golden wheat field towards an embrace that somehow undoes a lifetime of pain and damage, as if the past has no meaning,” said Carlile, “It’s about radical acceptance (not to be confused with complacency) and unconditional love.”
Carlile has earned seven Grammy Award nominations, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the year in 2019.
