Reviews:

''Hometown Girl'' is the debut album from American country music artist Mary Chapin Carpenter. It was released on July 30, 1987 (see 1987 in country music) on Columbia Records. The album did not produce any chart singles.

Vik Iyengar of Allmusic gave the album a two-and-a-half star rating out of five, saying that although it "her songwriting skills are apparent" on the album, it did not contain as many "rollicking" tunes as Carpenter's following albums. The ''Washington Post'' gave it a more favorable review, saying that her own songs "were more than strong enough" to carry the record.

Initially, Carpenter was to have included the John Stewart song "Runaway Train" on this album. However, it did not make the final cut, and was instead recorded by Rosanne Cash on her 1987 album ''King's Record Shop''. - Wikipedia
