Carolyn Dawn Johnson (born April 30, 1971 in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada) is a Canadian Juno Award winning country music singer-songwriter. Johnson’s first rose to fame by co-writing Chely Wright’s 1999 Number One single, "Single White Female", which reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in September 1999. In 2000, Johnson signed with Arista Nashville and, in 2001, released her debut album, Room with a View.
The album’s first two singles ("Georgia" and "Complicated") were both Number One hits on the Canadian country music charts, and the latter was a Top Ten hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. Although her next single ("I Don’t Want You to Go") was also a Top Ten in the U.S., her chart success there would wane not long afterward, though she has had continued success in her native Canada.
