Valerie June Carter, 23 June 1929, Maces Springs, Scott County, Virginia, USA, d. 15 May 2003, Nashville, Tennessee, USA. The second of the three daughters of Mother Maybelle Carter of the legendary Carter Family. Her mother taught her to play autoharp (and later guitar) and in 1939, she and sisters Anita Carter and Helen Carter were appearing on Border Radio as members of the Carter Family. When the original Carter Family retired in 1943, she sang and played rhythm guitar in the family group, Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters, on various radio stations, and from 1950 onwards, for many years, they were regulars on the Grand Ole Opry.

In 1949, Carter enjoyed a country and pop hit with a duet version of Baby, Its Cold Outside recorded with comedy duo...
