New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Brandi Carlile performs a solo, acoustic rendition of her Grammy Award-winning single, "The Joke," on today's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." Carlile also joins host Ellen DeGeneres for an interview.

The appearance continues a triumphant year for Carlile, who recently won three awards at the 61st GRAMMY Awards: "Best Americana Album (By The Way, I Forgive You), Best American Roots Song ("The Joke") and Best American Roots Performance ("The Joke"). Carlile also delivered a breakthrough performance of "The Joke" on the live awards broadcast. Of the performance, The New York Times proclaimed, "Carlile's vocals were robust, ragged, full of sneer and hope. On a night curiously light on impressive singing, it was an uncomplicated, genuine, cleansing thrill," while the Los Angeles Times called it, "triumphant" and Rolling Stone described it as, "breathtaking."

Produced by Grammy-Award winning producer Dave Cobb and acclaimed musician Shooter Jennings and recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A, By The Way, I Forgive You includes ten new songs written by Carlile and longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth.
In celebration of the release, Carlile will continue her extensive tour through 2019 including a special debut headline performance at New York City's Madison Square Garden on September 14. Additional stops include Dallas' The Bomb Factory, Chicago's Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island, St. Paul's Minnesota State Fair, Philadelphia's The Mann and Berkeley's The Greek Theatre at UC Berkeley among others.

Additionally, the official music video for Carlile's song "Party Of One" starring Elisabeth Moss recently premiered. Produced by Whooden Collective, the video stars Moss, who also served as Creative Director and Producer, and features a female-led crew including Bérénice Eveno (Director), Nicole Disson (Co-star), Diane Pellegrino (Producer), Garen Barsegian (Executive Producer), Kate Siegel (Executive Producer), Tara Bassim (Line Producer) and Cristina Dunlap (Cinematographer). Moreover, a duet version of the song, featuring Sam Smith, premiered earlier this fall. Profits from the recording benefit Children in Conflict via Brandi Carlile's Looking Out Foundation as part of its ongoing campaign to raise $1 million for children impacted by war.
