Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and Batesville resident Mary Chapin Carpenter can now add "newspaper columnist" to her resum©. On Friday November 21, the Washington Times debuted a new bi-weekly music column from Carpenter. Her inaugural installment centers on the band Hem, and how insurance company Liberty Mutual's use of the band's song "Better Days" in a TV commercial of theirs represents "a rare example of art and commerce providing a public service message for the soul."
