The Original Mr. Carter

Before there was Dwayne Carter, before there was Shawn Carter, there was Clarence Carter. 

I’ve mentioned on this blog before that one of my favorite Christmas songs is Carter’s “Back Door Santa” (hangs head in shame). Well, I figured more people should know about his soul music goodness and I recently nominated Carter’s “Slip Away” to be included in The Ultimate Alabama Playlist. This project is part of a Year of Alabama Music, a yearlong celebration of Alabama’s deep musical heritage. 

Check it out and then submit a nomination of your own.
