Carlene Carter 


Carlene Carter
Best known as June Carter’s daughter, Nick Lowe’s ex and for a few motoring mishaps, Carlene emerges with her first album in 12 years. She’s lost nothing as a writer or performer. Though it reveals too few reservations about snazzy keyboard sounds or strange vocal effects, Stronger is a heartening glimpse at the resilience of those Carter genes. Carlene’s still a friend of the autoharp grandma Maybelle played. Her voice can recall at will that smoldering yowl of her mom. “To Change Your Heart” glistens like a family standard. Timeless country harmonies float “Bring Love” over a power- pop beat. It’s a timely, triumphant return to the family biz.
