While definitely among Carter's best work, it may well stand as one of the best albums of this year.
BRIAN BAKER, COUNTRY STANDARD TIME (February 2008)

Stronger is one of her best and most personal albums to date. She's made a disc that's as lively as her music of the '80s and '90s without sidestepping the emotional gravity that informs her new material. Stronger shows she still has spunk and fire to spare, while also revealing a hard-won maturity and strength that richly, truly earns her the over-used appellation of "survivor."
MARK DEMING, ALLMUSIC (March 2008)

"Stronger" has the kick and luster of Carter's best songs from the '80s and '90s. It's an ironically joyous, even witty CD, filled with the kind of rollicking roots rock that extends the great American legacy that lives in Carter's genes.
JIM FARBER. NEW YORK DAILY NEWS (March 4, 2008)

This is why you should care about Carlene Carter: She puts her whole life into her music in a way few artists dare or accomplish. Not just snippets of a diary. I mean her life experience, her guts and her whole psyche. It goes in there. It's not always a pretty recipe. But the results are often gems of music.
CHET FLIPPO, CMT NEWS (March 13, 2008)

She returns with a confident new album grounded in the bedrock country that is her birthright as a member of the storied Carter family. Here's hoping she's home to stay.
CHRIS NEAL, COUNTRY WEEKLY (March 24, 2008)

Anybody who's not touched by reflective moments like "Bring Love" or the mournful-yet-uplifting title track must be a coldhearted creature indeed.
JON YOUNG, MOTHER JONES (May 2008)

New album and tour with John Mellencamp!
