June Carter !




Valerie June Carter was born June 23, 1929, in Maces Springs, Va., the second of the three daughters of Mother Maybelle Carter of the legendary Carter Family. Her mother taught her to play autoharp (and later guitar) and in 1939, she and sisters Anita and Helen Carter were appearing on Border Radio as members of the Carter Family. When the original Carter Family retired in 1943, she sang and played rhythm guitar in the family group, Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters, on various radio stations. From 1950 onwards, for many years, they were regulars on the Grand Ole Opry.
Hell, for the rest, go watch ‘Walk The Line’. Or read.

These June Carters are nice...on a similar C/W tip, we have 51 (FIFTY-ONE!) mostly country/western/gospel-y free mp3 tracks available at HPS...our "tribute" to Easter and JC

Some are quite "off the map" - though most stick close to well-trodden sonic paths
