From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

A.P. Carter (December 15, 1891 - November 7, 1960) was an American Country music musician.

He was born Alvin Pleasant Delaney Carter in Maces Springs, Virginia, (Poor Valley), the son of Robert C. Carter and Mollie Arvelle Bays. A.P. was sometimes called "Doc."

On June 18, 1915, he married Sara Dougherty. In 1927, he formed the Carter Family together with his wife. They were joined by her cousin, Maybelle, who was married to A.P.'s brother, Ezra Carter, and they together formed perhaps the first commercial rural Country music group.

A. P. Carter was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970. In 1993, his image appeared on a U.S. postage stamp honoring the Carter Family. In 2001 he was inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Honor.
