Carter Robertson Live at the Badgett Playhouse Grand Rivers

carterrobinsonJoin Carter Robertson for a special acoustic version of her show, “Playin’ on the Tracks-LIVE!” Saturday, April 4 at 7:00PM at the Badgett Playhouse in Grand Rivers, KY.

Enjoy behind the scenes stories & great songs from her years working with Waylon Jennings & the great Jessi Colter!

Vocalist Carter Robertson is no stranger to the music community, singing on such hits as Waylon’s “Are You Ready For the Country,” “Come With Me” and “Luckenbach Texas” to name a few. During the Outlaw Country years she backed up Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter both on the road and in the studio.

She later joined back up with old friends to form the Waymore Blues Band. Some of her studio credits include working with James Taylor, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Graham Nash, Don Was and many others.

Carter’s show is based on her recently released and critically acclaimed book “Playin’ on the Tracks” which has been endorsed by Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and has become part of its historical archives. She is a captivating storyteller, vocalist, and performer.
