Snake Handlin' Man is a 1995 album by American folk singer Dave Carter. This was his solo debut prior to his very successful partnership with fiddler, Tracy Grammer (see Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer). The duo re-recorded "The River Where She Sleeps" for their 1998 album When I Go, and "Cowboy Singer" for their 2000 release, Tanglewood Tree. Prior to Carter's death in 2002 the duo re-recorded the remaining nine songs and two new songs. The resulting final album, Seven is the Number was released in 2006.
