Chester Bennington's Widow Breaks Her Silence

Brandi Carlile Brings "Give Up the Ghost" to the Rolling Stone Studios

Rolling Stone recently welcomed onetime Artist to Watch Brandi Carlile to our studios to perform stripped-down acoustic versions of two tracks from her most recent disc Give Up the Ghost. Carlile, who logged time as a backup singer for an Elvis Presley impersonator at age 16, racked up a host of big-name collaborators on Ghost: Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Indigo Girls' Amy Ray, and a little British singer-songwriter named Elton John, who joins her on "Caroline."
