Her last album Hindsight 20/20, was released in September 1996. |
She won CMA's 1997 Single of the Year for Strawberry Wine.
However, she has gotten herself in trouble very recently. The following is an
article from an online entertainment news site, which in turn got it from a
Wire Service report.

Warrant Issued for Carlene Carter a judge issued an arrest warrant for country
singer Carlene Carter after she failed to show up for arraignment last month on
a felony drug charge.
Carter, 46, said her lawyer is taking care of the matter.
'Everything's fine,'' she said Tuesday in a telephone interview from her Tesuque
home. The Bernalillo County district attorney's office said Tuesday that Carter
doesn't have an attorney of record in the heroin-possession case.
She was ordered to appear Dec. 10 before state District Judge Pat Murdoch for
arraignment. She did not show, and the bench warrant was issued Dec. 17.
Last June, state police patrolling Interstate 25 in Albuquerque pulled over Carter
and her companion, Howie Epstein, bass player for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
State police said the pair were speeding, and that officers found 2.9 grams of
black tar heroin and drug paraphernalia inside the sport-utility vehicle, reported
stolen from a Santa Fe car dealership.
A criminal complaint said Carter 'claimed the paraphernalia and heroin found in
the vehicle belonged to her, and was used for personal use.'
She was indicted in November on charges of heroin possession and possession of
a list of paraphernalia, all with drug residue on them.
