Welcome to the official website of singer-songwriter Carlene Carter, daughter of country music legends June Carter and Carl Smith, stepdaughter of Johnny Cash, and granddaughter of "Mother" Maybelle Carter of the original Carter Family.

Carlene started her own career in the late 1970s, recording acclaimed fusions of her country heritage with the best of the new-wave rock musicians in England, then hit the U.S. country charts in the early 1990s with her Grammy nominated I Fell In Love album, and the international hit single "Every Little Thing."

She is back again with a tribute to the timeless music of her historic family that is being called a triumph, a masterpiece, and the album of her life. But while she is now referred to as an "Americana legend," she simply calls herself a Carter Girl.
