Can you still remember when 30 was old? Then you probably recall that memorable lyric from Deana Carter’s sparkling signature song, “Strawberry Wine.” Written by Matraca Berg and Gary Harrison, the narrative captures a young woman’s first love — a college boy working on her grandpa’s farm.
The storyline doesn’t have a happy ending of eternal love, but its true-to-life lyrics resonated with listeners of all ages. The surprise smash hit won 1997 CMA Awards for single and song of the year and helped propel the corresponding album, Did I Shave My Legs for This?, to sales of 5 million copies.
