Carlene Carter To Host ‘Wonderful World Of Women Who Write’ Residency At Bluebird

Carlene Carter has announced an October residency at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, the “Wonderful World of Women Who Write.” The songwriter series will feature some of her favorite female writers and collaborators, with Lilly Hiatt and Elizabeth Cook featured on the October 2 show. Lauren Morrow and Pam Tillis will perform October 16, and Gretchen Peters and Matraca Berg will join Carter on Oct. 30. All shows will begin at 9 p.m. CT.

“I wanted to celebrate my return to Nashville by inviting women who inspire me in their writing,” said Carter, daughter of country legends June Carter and Carl Smith and granddaughter of “Mother” Maybelle Carter. “I was brought up in a songwriting family of women writers, and there is a sisterhood that is so special and solid between women who write. Each one of these ladies have inspired me in their works, and I am so honored that they all said YES!”

Reservations will be available on a pre-paid basis for $25.00 one week ahead of each show date at

“When I got the call about Carlene’s wish to create this residency, I was thrilled she would want to mark her return to Nashville here at The Bluebird,” said Erika Wollam Nichols, General Manager of The Bluebird Cafe. “We’re delighted that we can present this series to welcome Carlene back to town and share in her musical collaborations with these amazing and spirited women during the month of October!”
