Aarun Carter picked up the fiddle before she hit preschool.
She won the Colorado State Small Fry Division at 4 years old and snagged the prize for “youngest fiddler” at the National Old Time Fiddlers Contest, a news release said. Now, she holds five Colorado state champion titles and was the 2011 National Young Adult Champion.

Carter and Trawick recently released Deep End Sessions, Vol. 1, inspired by the first country music recording in 1922, the release said.
