Carter Family (Musical group)
A. P. Carter, his wife Sara, and his sister-in-law Maybelle first recorded as the Carter Family in pioneering recording sessions at Bristol, Va., in 1927. They continued to perform and record together until 1941, establishing themselves as one of the most influential groups in the country music industry. They recorded a wide range of song types from blues, ballads, and gospel to traditional folk songs and original compositions. Carter family members recorded in various combinations in later years, with A. P., Sara, and their children Janette and Joe recording together and sometimes known as the Carter Family. Maybelle later performed and recorded with her daughters, June Helen, and Anita. In 1970, the original Carter Family was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
