iTunes Review

While Carlene Carter has benefitted from her family name, she’s also forever been haunted by it. The surname surely jumped her to the front of the line for aspiring country singers, but then the expectation levels were always unfair, and Carter was left to struggle with the weight of it all. For 2014’s Carter Girl, she addresses the legacy head-on, recording 11 songs written by members of her family and one original that reflects on her grandparents’ days before stardom (“Me and the Wildwood Rose.”) She updates the classic “Lonesome Valley” to include the deaths of her mother, June Carter, and stepdad, Johnny Cash; Vince Gill steps in to share vocal duties. Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Elizabeth Cook make special appearances. But the true strength of the recording is in Don Was’ traditional-modern production. He brings in legendary rock-solid drummer Jim Keltner and pedal steel extraordinaire Greg Leisz to serve these songs fairly.

My family and I met Carlene and her husband this past summer at breakfast at a small Los Angeles hotel. We’re from Kentucky and everyone knows of Carlene’s Tennessee connections, so we got along great. They were some of the nicest people you would ever want to meet and we thoroughly enjoyed our chat. As we were checking out of the hotel, Carlene’s husband gave us five “Carter” t-shirts, which we’ve all worn repeatedly. I’ve always been a fan of the Carter family and the music they’ve made throughout the decades. They told us that Carlene was working on this album and I’ve been anxiously awaiting its release since summer. Well, this work does not disappoint. Masterful songwriting, playing and Carlene sings with a depth of emotion that sends shivers down one’s spine. This is real country and American music and the type that is sadly missing from contemporary country radio. So, do yourself a huge favor and purchase this now. I’ve been listening to it all morning and it just keeps getting better with each repeated listen. Congratulations to Carlene, her husband, family, and the team that created this very special music.

Last Stop On Tour

Carlene Carter has always straddled the line between country and rock and followed her own path. Beginning her career as a rock singer in the mid-'70s, she became immersed in the new wave in the late '70s before emerging as a new country singer in the late '80s. Throughout it all, her music has always infused roots music -- whether country or rock & roll -- with a nervy, edgy energy. Carlene is the daughter of June Carter and Carl Smith, who divorced when their daughter was just two. June would...
