Carlene Carter on Mountain Stage

From NPR.org: Country singer and songwriter Carlene Carter is a third-generation member of country music's First Family. The Carters were extraordinarily prolific: Carlene's grandmother, "Mother" Maybelle Carter, along with A.P. and Sara Carter, cut some of the first commercially successful country music in the border town of Bristol, Tenn./Va., back in 1927. Those landmark sessions -- and Bristol's rich history -- are now preserved by the non-profit group The Birthplace of Country Music Alliance, which invited Mountain Stage to record in Bristol for a third consecutive year. The daughter of June Carter and her first husband, rockabilly singer Carl Smith, Carlene Carter is heard here in a special appearance in the historic border city, where she performs selections from her first new record in 12 years, Stronger.
