Canadian Country singer, entertainer and legend CARROLL BAKER was born in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. In 1965, Carroll, her mother and father moved to Oakville, Ontario. A couple of years later, she married John Beaulieu. The newlyweds were invited to go to a bar in Oakville called The Halton Hotel where one of her friends told the band that Carroll sang and they should get her up to do a song. Carroll had no idea about this so when she heard her name to go up and sing, she was speechless and scared to death. She was also underage! Her husband encouraged her, so she accepted the invitation and sang Stand By Your Man. In 1972, she made the trip to Nashville to record. Carroll has shared the stage - and duets - with Country legends Conway Twitty & Hank Snow, among others. She has won three Junos for Country Female Vocalist of the Year and is a member of The Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame & The Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame. Tune in for this special episode with one of Canada's finest Country performers who is still taking the stage to sing for her devoted fans.
