Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Ironically, the original Carter Family reached their greatest fame after J.P. and Sarah were divorced, aided by tremendously powerful Texas "border radio" transmissions broadcast from towers in Mexico. Soon after, a story on the family in Life was cancelled because of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor and Maybelle's side of the family continued the musical tradition.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Joan Baez (songwriter, performer): There are very few songs that make it to campfires around the world. In Germany or France or Turkey you're likely to hear a version of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?"
