Carl recently received two very prestigous awards from his home state of Mississippi. 

In December 2011 he was honored with an official Mississippi Country Music Trail Marker, placed only a stone's throw away from the historic Strand Theatre in Carl's hometown of Louisville.

In February of 2012 Carl received the highest honor the state of Mississippi gives out when he was presented with The Governors Award For Excellence In The Arts.

In January of 2013, Carl's new project entitled "Grace Notes" was released.  It is a long awaited collection of twelve beloved hymns played on twelve different (mostly vintage) guitars.  A spoken description and the story behind each guitar precedes each track.

On May 12th, 2015, "Orthophonic Joy: The 1927 Bristol Sessions Revisited" was released.  It's a multi-artist, star-studded, tribute to the "big bang of country music" that happened in Bristol during the summer of 1927.
