Well, the questions have been answered. After supporting the Goo Goo Dolls over the summer and playing at numerous radio shows, Carlton has earned recognition. She recently performed at Neil Young’s annual Bridge School benefit – one of two females to appear on this year’s bill. The other was LeAnn Rimes.

Now, Carlton is out on her first headlining tour, and it’s a full one. The trek started October 20 and will continue through February, with the first months of the new year being spent in Europe.

Aussie hottie Ben Lee is onboard through November 13, while Marc Copely appears November 14-27. Los Angeles-based Maroon 5 step out of their familiar territory to ride along December 2-14.
