"I Gotta Keep Dancing" and "Gotta Get Away From Your Love" were the two hit singles from Carrie Lucas's first album, Simply Carrie, released in 1977. "I Gotta Keep Dancing" peaked at number #64 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1977.

Lucas' next release was in 1982 and entitled, Still In Love. It was recorded and released under the banner of Solar Records and distributed by Elektra/Asylum. The album produced two 12" singles, "Men" and the more successful "Show Me Where You're Coming From." Sheila E. co-wrote the album's title track.

Her most recent album was released in 1985. "Horsin' Around" spawned four 12" singles; "Charlie," "Horsin' Around," "Summer In The Street" and "Hello Stranger." Her cover version of Barbara Lewis' "Hello Stranger" reached #20 on the USBillboard R&B chart.

Lucas' last known recording was an appearance on the 1990 soundtrack to Lambada: Set The Night On Fire. She performed the song "I Like the Rhythm." Lucas is now married to Griffey and decided to retire from the music industry and concentrate on married life and her horses. Carrie Lucas is also the mother of Carolyn Griffey.

Unidisc Records in Canada has released a Greatest Hits package that contains most of her 12" mixes in 1999.
