Caroline Georgine Corr is a member of the Irish pop/rock/Celtic musical group The Corrs. The other band members are her brother Jim and her sisters Andrea and Sharon. The Corrs' parents were musicians who strongly encouraged each of their children to pursue music. Caroline was taught the piano by her father from a very early age. She also learned the bodhran while very young. Although she is now the drummer for the Corrs, she did not take up that instrument until she was 18. By all accounts, she has done well with it. She also play piano and contributes back-up vocals for the group.

The siblings first performed as a band when they auditioned to play in the musical film The Commitments (1991). The movie's musical director John Hughes saw potential in the band and became their manager. The band's music shows strong influences from traditional Celtic but also modern pop such as the Eagles and the Carpenters. In 1994 The Corrs landed a recording contract with producer David Foster of Atlantic Records (USA). Their debut album was "Forgiven, Not Forgotten" (1995), followed by "Talk on Corners" (1997), "In Blue" (2000) and "Borowed Heaven (2004)". To date they have sold some 30 million albums. The Corrs have peformed on tour with musical acts U2, Celine Dion, and the Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger has commented "They blew us, the Stones, off our own stage". The Corrs have also appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and have made an MTV-sponsored "Unplugged" video.
