Her grandmother was Maybelle Carter, her mother was June Carter Cash, and her stepdad was Johnny Cash. Carlene does her famed kin proud in burnished versions of Carter Family classics like "I'll Be All Smiles Tonight" and an updated "Lonesome Valley 2003," a paean for her mother on which she's joined by Vince Gill, and "Troublesome Waters," where she's backed by Willie Nelson.

"Carlene has revived their songs before, but never with this intensity and emotion…. There's a new maturity to her stomping, brooding treatment of 'Little Black Train,' or the thoughtful 'Give Me the Roses'."—The Guardian

"This isn't meant to be a sepia-toned reproduction of those old songs. Instead, Carter brings them into her musical world — charging June Carter's murder-suicide ballad 'Tall Lover Man' with the sort of twangy, poppy, country-rock treatment that has always been the daughter's calling card … and reprising her own 'Me and the Wildwood Rose' to sing her memories of time spent on the road with the Carter Sisters. This may be the best record this Carter girl has ever made."—Boston Globe

"Carter has developed a gratifying maturity in her singing. You can hear it showcased in the lovely, simple arrangements…. She doesn't approach these old songs as sacred relics to be enshrined with pious respect. Rather, she treats them like living, vital pieces of art that can withstand being taken apart, thought about and re-imagined…. In the process, she comes up with her own excellent piece of work."—NPR
