Highway 101's Paulette Carlson
Country, Songwriter, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s
A life well lived is the best foundation for a successful music career. So as Paulette Carlson enters the next chapter in her career, the petite blonde with the distinctive voice is infusing her music with a wealth of experiences that take her artistry to a new level. She returns to the country music community with a new album, "It's About Time," filled with songs about life, love, family and the universal human experiences that unite us.
The same voice that sent sparks through country radio leading the groundbreaking band Highway 101, has returned with a compelling collection of new songs that will quickly remind listeners of Paulette's place in the country music firmament. As a founding member of Highway 101, Paulette helped re-define the face of country music in the late 80's with such innovative hits "Whiskey, If You Were A Woman," "The Bed You Made for Me," "Somewhere Tonight" and "Cry, Cry, Cry." The band won vocal group of the year honors from both the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association in 1988 and repeated those victories in 1989. Paulette left to pursue a solo venture in 1990, briefly reuniting with the band for its 10th anniversary in the mid 90's. Then she disappeared. In reality, her priorities shifted. "I had a daughter and she traveled on the road with me", recalls Paulette of juggling the demands of a successful country music career and motherhood.
