Brandi Carlile to headline Maura Healey inauguration at TD Garden


Six-time Grammy-award-winning singer Brandi Carlile will headline the Healey-Driscoll inaugural celebration at TD Garden.

Gov.-Elect Maura Healey said Carlile was the “perfect” entertainer to headline her inaugural ball on Thursday, saying that the singer-songwriter’s music “spans genres and explores themes of women’s empowerment, LGBTQ+ history and the joy of community.”

“I’ve been a fan of Brandi’s music for a long time, and it is so special that she will be a part of our inauguration,” Healey, the first woman elected governor of Massachusetts and the first lesbain governor in the country, said in a statement. “I can’t think of a more perfect musician to bring us together for this celebration.”

Carlile has released seven studio albums. Her most recent, “In These Silent Days,” is nominated for seven Grammy Awards this year, including the coveted “record” and “album of the year” categories.

She married her wife, Catherine, in Massachusetts. They live in Maple Valley, Washington with their two daughters, Evangeline and Elijah.

Carlile said she was “thrilled to be honoring two barrier-breaking women” in Healey and Lt. Gov-Elect Kim Driscoll, who will serve as the state’s first all-women leadership team.
