    This is unashamedly traditional: committed, personal and really quite perfect. [May 2014, p.91]

    This may be the best record this Carter girl has ever made.

    On Carter Girl, Carlene Carter has confronted the mighty legacy of the Carter Family's songbook and allowed it to strengthen her music rather than buckling under its weight, and this ranks with her finest recorded work to date.

    Carlene has explained that she feels charged with the responsibility of maintaining and extending her family’s music, and without falsehood or artifice of any kind, she does exactly that on Carter Girl.

    She long ago proved herself worthy of the family legacy, but Carter Girl would be a highlight of her substantial discography regardless of familial stamp.
  6. 60
    Carter Girl reaffirms Carlene Carter’s role as scion of country music’s leading family through a mixture of Carter Family classics and original material, plus shaky duets with Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson.

    She sounded better as a bit of a bad girl. [Jun 2014, p.106]
