The Lucky Valentines: New And Used Americana From Fort Benton

19 hours ago

Shaun and Jamie Carrier of The Lucky Valentines met playing tunes at a fundraiser in Fort Benton, Montana. Cupid’s arrow pierced them and their shared love of classical music, rock ‘n roll, alt-country, blues, indie, Christian and folk music.

Married on February 14, 2010, today they travel Montana in a giant RV with four kids and their co-written “new and used Americana” songs that reflect the beautiful, lonesome landscape of north-central Montana. Their 2016 independent release, “Lion in the Garden,” is a collection of songs that explores betrayal, loss, and joy.
