As part of Country music royalty, Carlene Carter has truly walked the broken lines of the music business and life. She has seen the dark side of fame and struggled with addiction, all the while holding onto the grace and class emboldened deep family roots. Stronger is a raw but touching recollection of her life of the past few years that included the wrenching sorrow of the sudden death of her stepfather, mother, sister and ex-lover. In that same year she experienced the euphoria of meeting and falling in love with the cowboy of her dreams. Carlene started the pre-production with her brother John Carter Cash in 2006. She stepped up the songs' production and turned to her old friend/ former bandmember, John McFee (Doobie Brothers, Southern Pacific fame).
