Carlene Carter live

Ben Edmonds, MOJO, November 1996

"I WANNA TELL Y’ALL SOMETHING," Carlene Carter notifies the young country audience that’s braved an outdoor venue on an unseasonably cold and wet September evening. Wearing an obscenely short, black vinyl micro-miniskirt, silver jacket and matching boots, Carter – a third generation member of America’s oldest musical family – had no difficulty commanding the audience’s attention.
