Deana Carter Background
Growing up as the daughter of renowned producer and studio guitarist, Fred Carter, Jr., Deana Carter it seems she was naturally destined to become a singer. Carter was consistently surrounded by a dynamic group of musicians that her father worked with, including Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. Their powerful inspiration would eventually soak into Carter's own brand of country-pop music.
Despite having a well-connected father in the music business, Carter established her own identity and individuality. After her first stab at music success failed, she attended the University of Tennessee. Carter studied rehabilitation therapy and joined a sorority. During college, she sang at several different campus venues - without the intention of going after a musical career. After college graduation, Carter chose to work with head injury patients and recovering stroke patients. Although she found her career to be fulfilling, she decided to pursue her first passion of music.
She started off by polishing her songwriting skills, taking part in writer's nights in Nashville. Eventually, Polygram hooked her up with a writing deal. She then scored a record deal with Capitol Records.
Country great Willie Nelson got a hold of one of Carter's demo tapes and was very taken with how she had matured as a songwriter, having remembered her as a child. Nelson invited Carter to play along with Kris Kristofferson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young as the exclusive female solo artist at 1994's Farm Aid VII.
In the late summer of 1996, Carter released her premiere album, Did I Shave My Legs For This? The album contains six tunes that Carter co-produced and co-penned. The album was very well received and by the close of 1996, the record had shot to the top of both the pop and country charts. It additionally claimed multi-platinum status.
A year later, Carter's rendition of Once Upon a December was included on the 1997 Anastasia soundtrack.
In 1998, Carter released Everything's Gonna Be Alright, her sophomore album, followed by a holiday album she did with her father, aptly named Father Christmas. Carter issued I'm Just a Girl in 2003 on Arista Records. That same year, A Greatest Hits compilation arrived from Capitol Records. Two years later, The Story of My Life came out, followed by The Chain in 2007.
A year later, Carter was named as one of the 100 Greatest Women (of Country Music) by Country Universe. She placed at No. 81.
To preserve her father's legacy and her musical roots, Carter started her own label, Little Nugget Records, a spin on the name of her father's label, Nugget Records.
These days, Carter splits her time between Nashville and L.A. She writes and produces for country and pop/rock genres when she's not on the road.
