Drenched in sun-kissed natural beauty both inside and out, Nashville native,
Deana Carter, didn’t take a seemingly easy route to stardom, but instead chose to defy the conventional expectations of the typical Nashville artist blueprint and make her own mark. And she did, undeniably taking the industry and fans by storm with her wildly successful multi-platinum international debut “Did I Shave My Legs For This?” more two decades ago. Anchored by the dreamy super hit ” Strawberry Wine”, Carter showcased her own blend of country and retro- rock sprinkled with the folksy singer/songwriter qualities that have garnered Carter well- deserved respect and wild acclaim.
Her debut album, “Did I Shave My Legs For This?” boasts six songs co-written and with the album co-produced by Carter, was released to strong reviews in late summer 1996. By the end of the year, the record had climbed to the top of both the country and pop charts, quickly achieving multi-platinum status, with three number one singles in a row. “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” followed in late 1998 and in 2001. Making a strong move towards adult pop, Carter released “I’m Just a Girl” on Arista Records in 2003, the same year Capitol Records released a Greatest Hits compilation. Her superstar success continues to be evident as the chart topper “You & Tequila”, recorded by Kenny Chesney, was nominated as CMA’s “Song of the Year”, as well as two Grammy nods, notable the coveted “Song of the Year”, and, also, received a nomination as ACM’s “Song of the Year”.
