Brandi Carlile (born June 1, 1981) is an American alternative country and folk rock who, in 2005, was featured on the Rolling Stone list of "10 Artists to Watch in 2005" in recognition of her self-produced debut album on Columbia Records simply titled Brandi Carlile.

In 2007, her album The Story was produced by T-Bone Burnett and included a collaboration with the Indigo Girls on the song "Cannonball"; by 2011, the hidden track "Hiding My Heart" from the album was covered by English singer Adele as a bonus track for the limited edition of the latter's album 21.

Carlile is best known for the eponymous song from the The Story album. "The Story", the song, was used in a General Motors television commercial aired on American and Canadian television showcasing the car company's new line-up of more fuel-efficient cars. Due to the ad airing heavily during the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the song increased in downloads.
