Carlene Carter At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Born in September of 1955 in Nashville, Tennessee, Carlene Carter was born into music. She is the daughter of June Carter and her first husband Carl Smith, and the step-daughter of Johnny Cash. In 1987, Carlene joined the trio, The Carter Sisters, which consisted of her mother June and her sisters Helen and Anita. Before then, Carlene’s solo career started in the late 1970s, when she introduced “Swap-Meat Rag,” a mate-swapping song she released during a concert at New York’s Bottom Line. Her career took off in 1990, however, with the album I Fell in Love. The album and its title song both topped the U.S. country albums and singles charts.
