Being in Canada I always meet folks who love my Daddy Carl Smith as he had a very successful TV show based out of Toronto for a while! Met the sweetest lady last night who came to give me a hug in Winnipeg last night at our show! She said “I’m the #1 Canadian fan of your Daddy Carl!” Made me shed a tear that she said that! She had beautiful blue eyes like my Daddy had:-) Thank you Winnipeg for a beautiful night! This Carter Girl is Smith and proud of it just as much! Winnipeg was wonderful as usual and it blessed my heart to meet so many new and old fans!
Great start to the last leg of the John Mellencamp Plain Spoken Tour http://www.mellencamp.com/tourdates.html Only 15 shows left but we’ll be back out together next year if all goes as plans are in the works:-) I’ve truly enjoyed this year of playing with JM and the band and crew have been amazing to work with! 2 nights in Regina should be fantastic as we go on to Saskatoon, Calgary and Vancouver. Going out to enjoy the city on my day off today! The rest of the dates are on my website Calendar page as always.
June 23 was my Momma’s 86th birthday had she continued having them. She passed in May 2003. Wanted to share some of my personal memories of Momma on this site: Remembering June Carter Cash by Carlene Carter. http://innocentwords.com/remembering-june-carter-cash-by-carlene-carter/
Today is the anniversary of when Momma and Daddy were married in 1952, and you can see their wedding picture today on my Facebook fan page https://www.facebook.com/officialcarlenecarter
I will send Brad the remaining t-shirts at end of tour for fan club members who didn’t get a chance to get them or be at shows. Working on new music for next project and will fill you in on upcoming plans and have some dates in the fall and into December. Not going to make Farm Aid this year sadly am taking off a couple of months and Joe’s daughter Meghan and James’ wedding in September will be fun. Need to rest and write a few songs during my break. Mid October I should be back working on dates and doing some recording. Some surprises up my sleeve for next year too!!
Thank you to everyone who sends me messages on here and also Facebook. They are all so sweet I appreciate your notes to me. I try and write back but can’t keep up at all!
Love to everyone as always!
