Wild Together Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Much is made of the rebel background of the three women of Carter’s Chord. They are daughters of Carter and Barny Roberson, two of Waylon Jennings’ classic-era Waylors. They have named their 2011 EP Wild Together, and yet their music isn’t especially rebellious. It’s sweet, melodic country-pop that taps into the spirit of the Dixie Chicks, containing a similar melodic bent and reliance on harmony, but lacking the bluegrass underpinnings. Wild Together is firmly planted in the pop side of country-pop, but the tunes are sturdy enough and Carter’s Chord are charming enough to make this thoroughly appealing crossover country.
