Mother Maybelle Carter was the popular stage name of Maybelle Carter (May 10, 1909 - October 23, 1978), a member of The Carter Family - the singing group that had a profound impact on bluegrass, country, southern gospel, pop and rock musicians as well as on the U.S. folk revival of the 1960s. She had three daughters, Helen Carter, Valerie June Carter (later known as June Carter Cash, following June’s marriage to Johnny Cash), and Anita Carter. When the original Carter Family trio stopped recording together in 1943, Maybelle Carter formed Mother Maybelle & the Carter Sisters with her three daughters. They toured during the 1950s and 1960s.
