Asked to sum up the best quality of Chet Atkins in a sentence, three of his close friends and musical colleagues-Steve Wariner, Billy Edd Wheeler, and Paul Yandell-deemed the task impossible, recounting his many talents as a world-renowned guitarist, record producer, and RCA label executive.

Carter's Chord consists of sisters Joanna, Emily and Becky Robertson. They spent their childhood immersed in the sounds of country music, specifically the Outlaw Movement, thanks to parents Carter and Barny Robertson, both of whom were members of Waylon Jennings' road band. Having performed together from an early age, the three sisters made their recording debut on a 1998 Jennings album that their father produced. On May 24, Carter's Chord will release the harmony-laden Wild Together on Toby Keith's record label, Show Dog (a subsidiary of Universal Music).
