John Mellencamp’s career in music, spanning more than 35 years, has seen him transition from Pop star to one of the most highly respected singer/songwriters of a generation.  Mellencamp is incredibly acclaimed; he is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a Grammy winner, a recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, ASCAP Foundation’s Champion Award, The Woody Guthrie Award and Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award and more recently, the Founders Award, the top honor assigned by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. He is also one of the most successful live concert performers in the world.

Carlene Carter has been releasing music for almost four decades. The daughter of June Carter Cash and Country star Carl Smith, and stepdaughter of Johnny Cash, she is the physical embodiment of the Carter family in the 21st century.

Her most recently-released album was Carter Girl, a Don Was-produced collection of Carter Family songs and originals, inspired by her family.  Carlene spent the better part of the last few years on the road with John Mellencamp on his Plain Spoken tour, both as a support act and joining him on stage nightly to perform duets.  She also played a role in the touring production of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, the southern gothic musical play written by Stephen King and Mellencamp. Upcoming is the release of Sad Clowns and Hillbillies, the 2017 album by John Mellencamp featuring Carlene Carter and includes newly penned songs by Carlene.
