The McCarters were an American country music trio, which included Jennifer McCarter (born on Saturday 7 March 1964), and her sisters Lisa and Teresa (born on Monday 21 November 1966), who are twins.

Continuing the tradition of her musical heritage, at the age of seven, Jennifer McCarter taught herself how to clog and, by the time she was thirteen years old, Jennifer and her sisters, Lisa and Teresa, performed nightly at a nearby theatre.

Following her heart's desire to sing, at the age of fourteen, Jennifer McCarter taught herself to play guitar and her sisters, Lisa and Teresa, joined in on harmony vocals.

While other kids her age were listening to pop music, Jennifer McCarter was in the basement of her mountain home, with a portable record player, singing along to a number of country music and Bluegrass music legends, including Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Bill Monroe (Wednesday 13 September 1911 - Monday 9 September 1996).

It was this musical environment which shaped Jennifer McCarter's voice and ear for music and she grew into the unique artist that she is today.

Jennifer McCarter's passion for country music led her to Nashville.  Her tenacity and persistence paid off in August 1986, when Jennifer and her sisters, Lisa and Teresa, were granted a live audition for Nashville record producer, Kyle Lenning.

The audition with Nashville record producer, Kyle Lenning, led to a telephone call from Warner Bros. Records and, by March 1987, Jennifer McCarter and her sisters, Lisa and Teresa, were signed to the record label.



On Tuesday 21 June 1988, Jennifer McCarter & The McCarters (Lisa and Teresa) saw the release of their debut album, 'The Gift' (Warner Bros. Records, 1988), which was produced by Ed Seay, Paul Worley and Sharon Eaves, and included three tracks, which were hit singles on the Billboard country music singles chart:

'Timeless & True Love' (written by Buzz Cason, Charlie Black and Austin Roberts) (No.5, 1987) / this track also reached No.6 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks Chart in 1987
