When June Carter Cash died in May 2003, five weeks shy of her 74th birthday (and four months before the passing of her husband of 36 years, the irreplaceable Johnny Cash), we not only lost not a regal presence but a multi-faceted artist who had helped effect significant change in American Roots music. Born in rural Virginia, the second of three highly musical daughters of Ezra "Eck" Carter and the widely influential guitarist "Mother Maybelle" Carter, June Carter began performing with the First Family of Country Music during the year in which she turned ten. Keep On The Sunny Side: June Carter Cash, Her Life In Music begins in that year of 1939 with a high-spirited young June singing "Keep on the Sunny Side," the Carter Family's theme song, with her uncle and aunt, A.P. and Sara Carter, and her mother. This exemplary two-disc set, containing 40 songs (two of them previously unreleased) recorded mostly for Columbia, spans 64 years and touches upon every aspect of Ms. Carter Cash's remarkable career as singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist on autoharp and guitar.
