Country singer and songwriter Carlene Carter took to Instagram to share a sweet birthday tribute to her mother, June Carter Cash, with a fun fashion pic.
The post features Carlene wearing a bikini top with a Mickey and Minnie Mouse skirt while she dons classic sunglasses. “I started my solo career in 1978 when ‘Carlene Carter’ my 1st album was released. Since then, I’ve had quite an adventure as an entertainer and songwriter! It’s my Mommas birthday today so we’re celebrating on @watchmandolin with our 2nd show which is a small collection of all these years.”
Carter also shares, “My flair for interesting clothes was come by naturally and I inherited the fun aspects of dressing from her @JuneCarterCash.”

June created her own career before touring with music legend, Johnny Cash, who she ended up marrying. Cash died May 15, 2003, of complications from heart surgery.
