    • 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.
