Sad news, indeed. At least he was able to share the essence of his vision in his lyrics during his last years. According to the bio on the daveandtracy site, "Mr. Carter perfectly fit the old showbiz saw of the overnight sensation who was years in the making. Though he studied classical and world music (he had a master's degree in music theory from the University of Oklahoma), and was an excellent jazz pianist, he did not pick up a guitar to write a song until he was 42."

There's also a very poignant note from Tracy there. Apparently she still plans to be at Falcon Ridge "on Saturday, if not before." From her note, it sounds as if she will make sure that Carter's music will be heard for a long time to come.
