A Conversation with Carla Olson Mike Ragogna: Hi Carla, how are you? Carla Olson: I'm great. LA is not too hot today, and it's going to be a great day. MR: Every day is a great day in LA. CO: Well, that could be debated, but I think I'll probably just agree with you there. MR: [laughs] You have a new album, Have Harmony, Will Travel. How did you come up with the material for this one? CO: Several years ago, I was in between production projects, which is what I mainly do. I haven't done a studio album in a long time, mainly because I've been working at producing. One day I just thought, "Well, I'm in between projects. Maybe I should try to start something." I did have about half an album's worth of material written, but it wasn't really what I wanted to do at the time. I approached a could of people about doing a duet album, one of them being Peter Case, who I've known since the '70s, and he said, "Yeah, I'd love to." He loved the two suggestions of songs ...

  • THIRTIES
  • 1988
    Age 36
    Newton returned to the Top 10 in 1988 with "Tell Me True" from her 1987 album Emotion.
    More Details Hide Details The album's lead single, the progressive-country tune "First Time Caller," stalled at No. 24. Her final album of the decade, Ain't Gonna Cry (1989), was not promoted by the label and did not chart. But it did spawn her final Top-40 country hit to date, "When Love Comes Around the Bend," which RCA refused to release as a single because Newton's contract had not been renewed. After being dropped by RCA Records in 1989 (along with several other country artists, including Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, as country music as a whole was about to undergo momentous change), Newton took time to focus on her family life. Newton took a hiatus from recording albums, touring sporadically until returning to the music scene in late 1990s when she released the albums "The Trouble with Angels" (1998) and "American Girl" (1999).
  • 1985
    Age 33
    Newton married Goodspeed in 1985, and the couple had a daughter Jessica and son Tyler.
    More Details Hide Details Newton, now divorced, lives in San Diego, CA. Besides continuing in the music business, Newton works as a horse trader. She deals mostly in European horses. Studio albums
    Newton had always been moderately popular in country music; she responded to her waning popularity in the pop market by targeting her next album, 1985's Old Flame, solely to country audiences.
    More Details Hide Details The strategic move was a success; the album revitalized her career, reached No. 12 on the Billboard album chart and featured six Top-10 country hits, including the No. 1s "You Make Me Want to Make You Mine", "Hurt," and "Both to Each Other (Friends and Lovers)" (with Eddie Rabbitt), none of which (unlike her previous efforts) appeared at all on the pop charts. The duet was released to the public before the pop version "Friends and Lovers" by Gloria Loring and Carl Anderson; the pop version was released to radio and stores two weeks after Newton and Rabbitt's version first appeared, even though it was recorded first. Newton's version was originally available only on a special edition of the Old Flame album and on the Eddie Rabbitt album Rabbitt Traxx. The "Old Flame" album produced hit singles for more than sixteen months, with the final release being "What Can I Do with My Heart" (written by Otha Young), which reached the Top 10 in early 1987.
  • 1984
    Age 32
    According to a 1984 front-page article in Billboard magazine, changes at Capitol led Newton to return to RCA.
    More Details Hide Details The 1984 album Can't Wait All Night continued with a rock-oriented sound. The launch single, "A Little Love" and the title track became Newton's final charting pop singles to date, reaching No. 44 and No. 66, respectively; while "Restless Heart" made No. 57 on the country chart. "A Little Love" became Newton's seventh and final Top-10 hit on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, reaching the No. 7 spot. Newton's final double-header "Salem Spirit" tour with Alabama took place during this time, with Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers as the opening act.
  • 1983
    Age 31
    The direction for Newton's sixth and final Capitol album, 1983's Dirty Looks, was decidedly more rock-oriented and experimental than her usual blending of folk, pop and country styles.
    More Details Hide Details The album spawned a moderate-sized hit with "Tell Her No" (Hot 100 No. 27/AC No. 14) and the title track, a rock-edged number that charted low in the Hot 100. The single "Stranger at My Door" had a brief run on the country charts. The album was a moderate success, selling more than 300,000 copies in the United States and going Gold in Canada (50,000 copies). (The song "Dirty Looks" was written by Dave Robbins and Van Stephenson, who would later become part of the Country group Blackhawk in the 1990s. The pair also wrote Newton's 1984 country single "Restless Heart.")
  • TWENTIES
  • 1982
    Age 30
    In 1982, Newton toured with country band Alabama on the "Salem Spirit" double-headliner tour. (Various acts opened for Newton and Alabama.)
    More Details Hide Details
    In the spring of 1982 Newton released her fourth solo album, Quiet Lies, which sold 900,000 copies in the United States.
    More Details Hide Details The album went platinum in Canada (100,000 copies). From Quiet Lies came the Top 10 Pop and Adult Contemporary hit "Love's Been a Little Bit Hard on Me" (which garnered her another Pop Female Vocalist Grammy nomination). "Break It to Me Gently" was the second single and hit No. 1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, No. 2 on the Billboard Country chart, and No. 11 on the Hot 100. The recording, a contemporary remake of a Brenda Lee hit from the '60s, won Newton her first Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, beating out contemporaries Dolly Parton, Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris and Sylvia. The album's third and final single, "Heart of the Night," reached No. 4 on the Adult Contemporary chart in early 1983 and climbed to No. 25 on the Hot 100. The album also garnered Newton an award from Australia as the "Top International Country Artist" for the continent.
    In 1982, Newton received two Grammy nominations for Best Female Vocalist: one for "Angel of the Morning" in the Pop category, and another for "Queen of Hearts" in Country.
    More Details Hide Details These two singles became her biggest sellers in the United States, each earning an RIAA Gold certification. (Note: in 1981 and 1982, when these singles were certified, the RIAA standard for Gold singles was "more than 1 million copies sold"; in 1989, RIAA lowered the standard to 500,000 for Gold single certifications.) The songs were also sizable hits in Australia, Germany, the Netherlands and other countries. For example, "Angel of the Morning" peaked at No. 43 in the UK Singles Chart in May 1981. While "The Sweetest Thing (I've Ever Known)" failed to receive a U.S. certification, the song's popularity propelled album sales from Gold to Platinum, and the recording remained in the Top 40 (of the Hot 100) for 18 weeks
  • 1981
    Age 29
    In 1981, Newton's third solo album, simply titled Juice, was released. It spawned three consecutive Top-10 pop hits: a cover of the 1967 Merrilee Rush hit "Angel of the Morning" (written by Chip Taylor); "Queen of Hearts"; and an updated version of "The Sweetest Thing (I've Ever Known)" (the original version appeared on the 1975 Silver Spur debut album), which earned Newton the first of several No. 1 Country singles.
    More Details Hide Details A fourth single, "Ride 'Em Cowboy," was lifted from Juice in 1984 to support Newton's first Greatest Hits album and reached the Top 40 of the Country chart. Juice sold more than a million copies in the United States and went Triple-Platinum (300,000 copies) in Canada. "Angel of the Morning" and "The Sweetest Thing (I've Ever Known)" each reached No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart, where Newton would chart regularly for the next several years.
  • 1980
    Age 28
    The latter became Newton's second top-40 single on the country charts in 1980, with "You Fill My Life" reaching No. 41 and "Until Tonight" reaching No. 42.
    More Details Hide Details Both of Newton's initial solo efforts performed with modest success but failed to have lasting impacts on the album charts.
  • 1979
    Age 27
    Capitol's investment in Newton began to pay off in 1979, when Newton had her first Top-40 Country hit with "Let's Keep It That Way" (another one-off single).
    More Details Hide Details Later that year, the album Take Heart featured five modestly charting singles: "Until Tonight"; "Any Way That You Want Me"; "You Fill My Life"; "Lay Back In The Arms of Someone"; and "Sunshine."
  • 1978
    Age 26
    Newton's solo debut album, Well Kept Secret, was released later in 1978 and stands as Newton's most rock-oriented record, to date.
    More Details Hide Details Neither the record nor its sole single "Hey Baby" charted, though Capitol Records proceeded to renew Newton's contract.
    Also in 1978, The Carpenters' version of the Newton/Young-penned song "Sweet, Sweet Smile" reached the Top 10 on both the Country and Adult Contemporary charts, and #44 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
