Carlene Carter will be performing at the Dogwood Center on Monday, September 16 on the main stage! The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Carter has been releasing music for almost four decades. The daughter of June Carter Cash and county star Carl Smith, and stepdaughter of Johnny Cash, she is the physical embodiment of the Carter Family in the 21st century.
Wherever she performs, Carlene knows that she is doing her part to honor those who came before her, in her own way. "From the day I first touched a guitar or piano," Carter states, "my mom said, 'You have to carry on the legacy of the Carter Family music. It's supposed to be passed on and passed around." Now, many years after their first recordings changed the course of American music, that circle remains unbroken by Carlene Carter.
Since 1978, Carter has recorded twelve albums, primarily on major labels. She has released more than twenty singles, including three No. 3-peaking hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.
Carter is a prolific songwriter and musician, carving out a place for herself with hits singles such as "I Fell In Love" and "Every Little Thing." Most recently, Carter released an album with John Mellencamp, titled "Sad Clowns and Hillbillies".
Her upcoming album will be a new Carter Family project, “Across Generations.” Produced by her brother, John Carter Cash, it will feature five generations of Carters in new recordings and archival material.
