- Carlene in song, story & screen: | Edit
In late 1999, Vassar was signed to his first recording contract, with the Arista Nashville label. His debut single, "Carlene", was issued that year, and by mid-2000 the song had gone on to peak at #5 on the Billboard country charts.1 The song, about two friends whose lives exceeded the expectations of her high school peers, was inspired by Vassar's own life (the male protagonist being a former sports star turned songwriter), while actress Cindy Crawford served as the inspiration for the female character in the song.
