CMA award-winner Deana Carter will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of her 5X Platinum debut album Did I Shave My Legs for This? in her hometown of Nashville on November 18, 2021 at the historic Ryman Auditorium, with special guests Charles Esten and Breland, as well as surprise appearances from other artists.

“It is such an honor and a career highlight to finally headline The Ryman, our sacred Mother Church, especially being a Nashville native and growing up in the industry, knowing that my dad, Fred Carter, Jr., performed on that stage with so many greats,” Carter says. “And all falling within the 25th anniversary re-release of my very first album Did I Shave My Legs For This? on UMG Nashville. It is a ‘pinch-me’ moment now,” she adds, “and it will be on that super special night with Charles Esten and Breland and some surprise guests too.”

Country newcomer Breland recently covered the first-love love song “Strawberry Wine” as part of Spotify’s 90s Country campaign and will be opening for Carter at the Ryman show. “’Strawberry Wine’ was just one of those songs that transcended time,” Breland said of the ballad.

On November 5, Capitol Nashville/UMe will release 25th Anniversary Editions of the stunning debut from the award-winning country singer-songwriter. But it isn’t just Carter doing the singing this time around. The project includes two new tracks with Carter performing and producing 2021 versions of the CMA award-winning, and 2X platinum hit single “Strawberry Wine,” featuring  Lauren Alaina, Martina McBride, Ashley McBryde, Kylie Morgan, and Vince Gill on guitar, as well as the title track, featuring Terri Clark, Sara Evans, Ashley McBryde, and Vince Gill.

The 25th anniversary editions of the album have been remastered from the original recordings and will be released on CD with two bonus tracks, as well as a Digital Deluxe with an additional ten songs, seven of which will be available digitally for the first time. Pre-order/Pre-save HERE

“I am beyond blown away to see the generational connection between my first single, ‘Strawberry Wine’ and all the fans, young and seasoned,” Carter shares. “Being a part of a song that has become an anthem for the ‘90s and beyond is such a blessing, and more than I could’ve ever dreamed of. The fans have been the catalyst for the success of ‘Strawberry Wine’ and the whole Shave album because of their connection to the truth and realness behind the songs.”

Carter’s “Strawberry Wine,” co-written by Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Song, the Academy of Country Music Awards Best Country Song,  and the Country Music Radio Awards for Song of the Year.  And in 1997, it was named the Country Music Association’s Single of the Year and Song of the Year.

Other chart toppers from Carter’s debut album included the title track, along with “We Danced Anyway” (co-written by Berg and Randy Scruggs), “How Do I Get There” (co-written by Carter and Chris Farren), and “Count Me In” (co-written by Carter and Chuck Jones).
