With four straight Grammy Awards for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in the early 1990s, Mary Chapin Carpenter got herself pigeonholed as a country singer. But it feels more accurate to describe Carpenter as a singer-songwriter capable of leaning in and out of Nashville. She’s sold more than 14 million albums, which means she has a huge arsenal of songs to draw from in concert. Carpenter’s new album, “The Things That We Are Made Of,” has received high marks from critics. But fans undoubtedly will get treated to classics such as “Passionate Kisses” (penned by Lucinda Williams) and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her” at the Morrison Center.
8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, Morrison Center, 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane, Boise. $39.50-$79.50. Ticketmaster.
