Pre-order "Old-Fashioned Gal"


We are heading to the studio in February to record our 2nd album, and we need your help. We've been saving away, but there are a lot of costs that come with making a studio album, and so we are taking pre-orders to help offset our expenses. We are very excited to get to work with Cindy Cashdollar (steel guitar and dobro genius) and Billy Lee Myers (sound engineer, Austin City Limits TV) as producers for this record!

Simply pre-order your copy (or copies) now via our website, and we will put yours in the mail as soon as they're off the presses. Our goal for pre-orders is 350, as of 1/22/13, we've already had 170 folks send in their $15 to reserve their copy. We hope to have the CD available by early summer, and you can have yours first!

Thanks for your support! Love, the Carper Family Jenn, Beth, and Melissa
