Country Musician. Born Helen Myrl Carter, she was a member of the country singing group " Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters". She performed with her mother Maybelle, sisters Anita and June, later wife to Johhny Cash. She had a professional career in music that spanned 60 years and recorded for such labels as Liberty, Columbia, MGM and RCA Victor. During the 1960s and 1970s, the group charted a number of top singles including "Traveling Minstrel Band", "The World Needs A Melody" and "A Song For Mama". Apart from the Carter Family, her greatest commercial success came as a songwriting talent for artists such as the Louvin Brothers, Ann-Margaret, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Mark Dinning.
