Like Schumer, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile also turned 40 last June 1st. Carlile celebrated her big 4-0 by launching her so-called 40/40/40 campaign, which aims to raise $40,000 in 40 days for Children in Conflict, a charity that protects children living in high conflict regions.

As of 2020, Carlile has released six studio albums and earned eleven Grammy Award nominations, including one for The Firewatcher’s Daughter, six for By the Way, I Forgive You, and three for her work as producer and songwriter on Tanya Tucker’s 2019 album While I’m Livin’. Carlile, who identifies herself as a lesbian, has two daughters with her wife Catherine Shepherd.
