Written by Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison, “Strawberry Wine” won CMA Single and Song of the Year in 1997. The enduring classic was also nominated for Best Country Song at the Grammys and the Academy of Country Music Awards, and nominated for Song of the Year at the Country Music Radio Awards.

“I am beyond blown away to see the generational connection between my first single, ‘Strawberry Wine’ and all the fans, young and seasoned,” Carter shared in a press statement. “Being a part of a song that has become an anthem for the ’90s and beyond is such a blessing and more than I could’ve ever dreamed of. The fans have been the catalyst for the success of ‘Strawberry Wine’ and the whole Shave album because of their connection to the truth and realness behind the songs.”

Carter co-wrote the title track “Did I Shave My Legs for This?” with Rhonda Hart.

“Who knew that some girl talk would end up becoming a cultural catchphrase for decades to come? Wow! This song is proof that a genuine, heartfelt message can be delivered with a sense of humor,” she added, “yet stand firm in the conviction to not settle for less in this life. Thanks to all the ladies who have sung this anthem at the top of their lungs and to my record label for letting me boldly title my debut album so memorably.”

At the core of the project is Carter’s undying appreciation for her dedicated audience.

“They lived it—just like I did—and just like all of my collaborators did. It was an honor to re-record two favorites with my fellow female artists who inspire me and who I admire,” says Carter. “These new versions are a way of raising a glass to everyone who loves these songs, and to the country radio stations still playing them, and to say thank you. I hope everyone enjoys celebrating 25 years of Did I Shave My Legs For This? as much as I’ve enjoyed putting together these very special releases.”

On October 16, Carter will perform on the Grand Ole Opry’s 4,998th show to celebrate the anniversary release. Purchase tickets here and pre-order/pre-save the Did I Shave My Legs For This? 25th Anniversary Edition here.
