Once you hear Carter’s Chord story, you’ll agree they were destined for life on a large stage. Becky, Emily and Joanna Robertson – the trio that compromises Carter’s Chord – are the daughters of two musically inclined parents, Barny and Carter Robertson. Grammy winner Barny is known as a keyboardist and producer; Carter a vocalist. Both were part of the Waylors, the Waylon Jennings road band from the 1970s.

In 1981, Becky arrived and the Robertson’s settled down, eventually relocating in Nashville. Emily and Joanna were born within a few years, and the constant presence of music inspired and impacted the sisters as they grew to find their own voices. As teenagers, they appeared on the Waylon Jennings album Cowboys, Sisters, Rascals & Dirt, and in 2005, they performed at a benefit concert that led to the sisters cutting a demo of their work. Within a year, the trio would catch the attention of Toby Keith.

It was Keith who signed Carter’s Chord to his own label, Show Dog Nashville, after he heard their performance in February 2006 at a Nashville club. In January 2008, Carter’s Chord released “Young Love,” and the debut single made the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. A second single, “A Different Breed,” followed in April. Under the producing wisdom of Toby Keith and their father, Carter’s Chord first album released in summer 2008 plans to unveil who they are to a wider audience – and perhaps launch their rise to the top of country music.

Carter’s Chord Says

On naming the band:
“We've always liked the idea of a musical chord, a triad. And one day we were all sitting around thinking of what we could call ourselves, and one of us - we don't even remember who - just out of the blue said 'Carter's Chord.”
