Deana Carter at Spencer Theater

  • Spencer Theater for the Performing Arts 108 Spencer Road Alto, NM 88312 United States (map)

In the big voice year of ‘96 a dreamy song called “Strawberry Wine” came on the radio and captured the hearts of millions of country music fans around the world. The tune, by 30-year-old newcomer Deana Carter, featured her soft, sensual voice in a tune about expectations. It defied all odds to become a multi-week #1 hit on her debut album Did I Shave My Legs For This?, a funny question in a title and one of the album’s songs that perfectly encapsulates the 
countrified wit and nostalgic wisdom of Carter. The debut album met a wild success as a multi-platinum international best seller. “Strawberry Wine” won a CMA “Single of the Year” award and a Grammy nomination for “Best Country Song.”

That initial singer-songwriter success blossomed into a full-blown career with nine albums, numerous honors and millions of records sold around the globe. Her roster of hits includes: “We Danced Anyway,” “How Do I Get There” and “Angels Working Overtime.” In 2013 she opened her own label, Little Nugget Records, on which her latest album Southern Way of Life was released with hit songs “That’s Just Me” and “Do or Die,” mostly written or co-written by Carter.
