Mariah Carey Plots Tour, Dispels Rocky Marriage Rumors

July 24, 2008 1:49 PM ET

Even though the album came out in April, Mariah Carey is finally plotting out a tour in support of her E=MC2. "We're looking at November right now," Carey told MTV. "Please don't hold me accountable if it turns out to be December 5 or December 7 or January 18!" Before she hits the road, Carey will perform at both the Teen Choice Awards on August 4th and Fashion Rocks at NY's Radio City Music Hall on September 5th. Much like her last tour — when Carey changed her wardrobe nine times over the course of one concert (kinda like her episode of MTV's Cribs) — Mimi promises the shows will be "elaborate." As for the rumored troubles between her and husband Nick Cannon following their self-promotional shotgun wedding, Carey says the couple are "good." "Life is beautiful, and things are going well," Carey said before asking fans to just be happy for her and stop rumor-mongering.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
