Album: Amerikinda: 20 Years of Dualtone

Editor’s Note: The Amerikinda compilation features a slew of Dualtone artists and alumni all covering each other’s songs in celebration of the label’s landmark birthday. June Carter Cash won a Grammy for her recording of “Keep on the Sunny Side;” her version of The Carter Family classic was included on her 2003 album, Wildwood Flower, released by Dualtone.
In Their Words: “Congrats on 20 years Dualtone. Thanks for being one of the most artist friendly labels out there. You have a great team and we are honored to be a part of the family tree. What an honor to cover one of the greatest of American classic songs ‘Keep on the Sunny Side,’ made famous by the Carter Family. We tried to add some tension to our version, with the tough, real life lyrics of the verses, juxtaposed with the one of the happiest choruses out there.” — Drew & Ellie Holcomb
