"He Thinks He'll Keep Her" by Mary Chapin Carpenter.

OK, more Country: This singer/songwriter's 1st #1 Country hit was a collaboration with Don Schlitz inspired by a 70's Geritol TV commercial in which a husband extols his wife's energy, attributes and accomplishments. A 36 year-old homemaker who has dedicated her life to her husband and children decides to do something for herself. Grammy-nominated for Record Of The Year in '93. The video is a live performance from a "Women Of Country" special with backup vocals from Emmylou Harris, Kathy Mattea, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood, Suzy Bogguss and Pam Tillis (man, with that backup even I would sound good!). HUGE standing "O" when she did it at the Grammys. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "I Remember You" by Frank Ifield. Great voice!
