Carter Family discography

This is a comprehensive discography of Carter Family, often cited as "the most influential group in country music history": (For recordings by the second generation of The Carter Family see The Carter Sisters.)

Selected 78 rpm records

The Carter Family's career predated any sort of best-selling chart of country music records. (Billboard did not have a country best sellers chart until 1944.) Below is a select list of their 78 rpm releases.
