Deana Carter to Release Vinyl Edition of ‘Did I Shave My Legs for This?’
Deana Carter is set to release a special vinyl edition of her groundbreaking debut album, Did I Shave My Legs For This? in honor of its 20th anniversary on March 31.
Available for the first time ever in this format, the multi-platinum album marked Carter's musical debut in 1996 that topped the country charts after its release. The groundbreaking album features the signature No. 1 single "Strawberry Wine," as well as "We Danced Away" and "How Do I Get There." In addition to the new vinyl product, fans also have the opportunity to purchase an exclusive bundle that includes an autographed copy of the album and guitar, along with a vintage T-shirt.
Did I Shave My Legs for This? sold more than five million copies and was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 1997 and 1998, with "Strawberry Wine" earning the singer a CMA Award for Single of the Year at the 1997 awards show. She also scored a nomination for Best Country Female Vocal Performance at the 39th annual Grammys. Did I Shave My Legs For This? scored a nod in the same category in 1998. The release was followed 1998's Everything's Gonna Be Alright, which reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.
Though Carter has kept a relatively low profile since her "Strawberry Wine" days, her music is still heard by the masses. She co-wrote Kenny Chesney's 2011 hit, "You and Tequila" featuring Grace Potter, with "Strawberry Wine" and "We Danced Away" writer Matraca Berg. The track earned a nomination for Song of the Year at the 2011 CMA Awards and was featured on Chesney's chart-topping album, Hemingway's Whiskey.
