Mary Chapin Carpenter - "Just Because"

Remember Mary Chapin Carpenter? She is not related to Harry Chapin or Karen Carpenter. She got big in the 1990's when anybody could sell a million copies of a CD.  She had four platinum albums.  She had a MOR hit with the Lucinda Williams song, "Passionate Kisses". She also had  about eight other top ten country hits.

My favorite song of hers is one called "Just Because".  It's a song she wrote that was on her relatively obscure debut 1987  album called Hometown Girl. "Just Because"  has an exquisite melody and lyric  made soulful by her rich alto voice. The song can also be found on a obscure compilation album of hers called Super Hits
