  • In this original graphic novel, Frank Young and David Lasky tell the story of the pioneering American country music group the Carter Family, who recorded between 1927 and 1956.

    The Carters had a humble beginning as struggling farmers in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and eventually became the first superstar group of country music, making hundreds of recordings and selling millions of records. Many of their hit songs like “Wildwood Flower,” “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” and “I’m Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes” have influenced countless musicians and remain timeless country standards. Complete with a CD of the Carter Family’s most loved songs, The Carter Family: Don’t Forget This Song is not only a unique illustrated biography but a moving account that reveals the family’s rise to success, their struggles along the way, and their impact on American country music. Illustrated with exacting detail and written in the southern dialect of the time, the graphic novel tells a dynamic narrative that is pure Americana. It is a story of success and failure; of poverty and wealth; of racism and tolerance; of creativity and business; and the power of music and love.
