Hard to believe it’s been a year since novelist Silas House wrote a feature in No Depression’s March-April 2007 issue heralding Carlene Carter’s first album in 13 years, Stronger (Yep Rock.) The album has finally been given a release date of March 4, 2008.
The album was recorded in 2006 at the Cash Family Cabin and produced by Carlene’s step-brother John Carter Cash.
Carter has released more than a dozen of her own albums from 1978 to 1995, as well as several recent reissues and performances on tribute albums for her mother, Waylon Jennings, and Bob Dylan. Her songs have been covered by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Emmylou Harris, Miranda Lambert, former husband Nick Lowe, and many others.
