A camera crew tagged along, too, grabbing footage of soundchecks, performances, family dinners, campfire hangouts, backstage high-fives and rare days at home for an upcoming documentary called "Wherever Is Your Heart." Although a release date has yet to be announced, the trailer — which doubles as the official music video of the "Wherever is Your Heart" single — makes its debut today on ."It was also our first tour as a family with all three kids, band and crew on one bus.Virtually all of their 2015 shows have sold out, including a performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater last Saturday night, where Carlile and company plugged in for an electric, elastic set.Kicking off the year as an unplugged act and wrapping up the summer as an amplified roots-rock band might be the most standard path, but Brandi Carlile has never worried about carving out a strange arc to her career — as long as it keeps everyone moving forward.On the creative front, Carlile recently released her fierce new album, "The Firewatcher's Daughter."
