On the “retro rack” today is Deana Carter who was making hit records in the mid 90′s. She came along at about the same time as people like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Pam Tillis and Kathy Mattea. But since then they have all faded from the charts.

 

Carter grew up around music. Her dad, Fred Carter Jr., who played guitar on many sessions in Nashville with the likes of Elvis, and Roy Orbison to name a few.

Deana got her big break when Willie Nelson heard one of her demos and invited her to be a part of his Farm Aid Concert in 1994.

That demo also landed her a contract with Capitol Records where she released her first album, “Did I Shave My Legs For This?”

Carter’s first song of the album was “Strawberry Wine”. It shot to Number One and it won the CMA single of the year in 1997.

She also contributed to the soundtrack of the movie “Hope Floats” and was nominated for a Grammy and Golden Globe for her song “Once Upon A December” in the animated movie “Anastasia”.
