Carter's Chord goes for adds on "Young Love"

Monday, January 14, 2008 – New group Carter's Chord, which has a strong musical pedigree, goes for adds at radio today with "Young Love." The trio of singing and songwriting sisters Becky, Emily and Joanna Robertson literally grew up in music as the daughters of keyboard player Barny Robertson and singer Carter Robertson, who toured and recorded with Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter at the height of the outlaw country movement.

The sisters were signed to ShowDog Nashville by label top dog Toby Keith, who co-produced their debut album with the sisters's Grammy winning producer and arranger father.

"Young Love" was written by Hillary Lindsey, Aimee Mayo and Scooter Carusoe. "I really loved this song when I first heard it, we all three did," says Emily Robertson. "It really made me think of my high school experience: sneaking out at night and running through fields and driving around in people's trucks on summer nights. It's a cool coming of age song, kind of like 'Strawberry Wine,' and it brought back some really cool memories. We all like the feel of it, and at the end we added some real powerful harmony parts that had some drama to them."

Carter's Chord's self-titled debut album will be released early this summer, and they will be opening shows for Toby Keith on his tour.

Tour dates are:
Feb. 14 Portland, ME Cumberland County Civic Center
Feb. 15 East Rutherford, NJ Izod Center
Feb. 16 Manchester, NH Verizon Wireless Arena
Feb. 17 Baltimore, MD First Mariner Arena
Feb. 28-29 Uncasville, CT Mohegan Sun
March 1 Verona, NY Turning Stone Resort & Casino
