About The Artist

Slim Carter was once on WWVA's Jamboree out of Wheeling, West Virginia. There, he met his wife, a gal known as "Brown Eyes" and later they became a performing team, Brown Eyes and Slim Carter and even won a popularity contest.

In 1950, he was being managed by Tim Spencer of Hollywood. He had also just recently recorded a few tunes for the MGM record label. In the band accompanying Slim on those recordings were a couple of legends, Merle Travis and Eddie Kirk. Those recordings were, "Penny Postcard", "Waltz for Two Broken Hearts", "Hungry Hearts", "I Would Send Roses".

He had also just signed an exclusive contract with Hill and Range Songs.
