Brandi carlile who is she dating
Carlile announced the engagement via a letter she sent to Again Today, a Brandi Carlile fansite. I realize the Seattle Times beat us to the punch but its cool that they care!
In these times and on the eve of Referendum 74 (a vote on gay marriage in Washington State) it's really important for me to help raise awareness around marriage equality so I'm stoked that they took an interest,” Carlile wrote to her fans.
And when I came around the corner and he was sitting there in that room and I saw him, I couldn't think of a single one of them.
But I was very pleased that he was wearing hot pink sunglasses. I guess I'm a happy person, but that's not really the place I create art from. Yeah, on tour we will stop on certain days off and get a hotel room with a kitchen in it, and we cook for our whole band and crew.
and Melissa, Ellen, Elton John, and Freddie Mercury -- really laid it out on the line and demanded nothing short of acceptance from people. I spent a few days in New York City with Amy around the release of her record, and I saw her doing all these interviews for gay publications. I don't talk about my relationship because my partner didn't really make the decision to be part of my craziness. [Laughs.] Well, talk about this then, because I don't think a lot of people know that you actually did background vocals for Melissa Etheridge's Lucky album. You've met a couple of your idols -- the Indigo Girls and Elton John. I've always been a fan of Ellen, since she was doing stand-up -- before I knew she was gay. When I first saw you in 2005, you performed for an obnoxious group of drunks.
I hope that they're able to say the same thing about me from a place of success and from a place of acceptance as a part of society, instead of oppression.

Out: There's a lot of soul-searching on Give Up the Ghost.
I hope that they're able to look to me and say that I was a role model and helped them get somewhere that makes happy with themselves, because my role models helped me get to where I'm happy with myself.
