Country music hit-maker Lacy J. Dalton is known for her willingness to help others, whether it range from teaching songwriting to prisoners in State Prison in California to saving wild horses throughout the West to simply rescuing a dog that has become the subject of her latest release “Carl The Christmas Dog.”
“Carl The Christmas Dog,” is based on a true story, however much like the movies this is not an actual portrayal. Carl did eat the tree, presents and a bunch of other things, however, he did not eat the cat!!
“Carl is not much of a guard dog, but he sure is like my best friend,” says Lacy J. Dalton. In making the video, Dalton adds, “This is quite the departure from many of the previous music videos, but I wanted to just get some friends and keep it fun and simple. So all we did was gather some good friends, Carl (the dog), a phone and a camera. I sure hope it brings some joy to everyone this Christmas season.”
First hitting the Country Top-40 in 1979 with “Crazy Blue Eyes,” Dalton was one the most successful female vocalists of the format during the 80s with such hits as “Takin’ It Easy,” “Hillbilly Girl With The Blues,” “Black Coffee,” and the CMA-nominated anthem “16th Avenue.” During her career, she has collaborated with such Country Music Hall of Fame members as Bobby Bare, Glen Campbell, Willie Nelson, and George Jones. Her most recent recorded work was a tribute album to Hank Williams entitled Here’s To Hank. Dalton is a 2017 inductee of the North American Country Music Association International Hall of Fame.
