Carlene Carter graced the stage of the Sirrus Radio sound studio at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday of Americana week to record a show.
She was joined by her husband Joe Breen, Jeff Hanna (Nitty Gritty Dirtband), Laura Cantrell, Peter Cooper, Shawn Camp, and Matraca Berg . She talked about her new album “Carter Girl” on Rounder Records, her upcoming tour opening 80 shows for John Mellencamp, and reminisced about growing up with the first family of country music, the Carter Family. Playing guitar and auto-harp she sang like a angel. The show closed with appropriately enough, “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” with Chance Martin joining in on vocals.
