Carrie Rodriguez, originally from Austin, Texas, grew up around music. Though she's a songwriter herself, her new album, Love & Circumstance, features songs written by others, including her father.

Songwriting legend Chip "Wild Thing" Taylor is credited with the discovery of Rodriguez' talents, and the pair made four duet records as well as several appearances on Mountain Stage. A retrospective collection of the duo's highlights, The New Bye and Bye, was released in October of 2010.

Accompanied by the Mountain Stage Band and Luke Jacobs on guitar and pedal steel, Rodriguez performs songs from Love & Circumstance in her second solo appearance on Mountain Stage.

This performance originally aired on Dec. 6, 2010.
