Karter began erotic dancing while in Missouri and was named the state's Déjà Vu Showgirl of the Year in 2007.[4] She later moved to California to pursue an acting and singing career. Karter fell out with her manager when he discovered she had been working as an exotic dancer.[2] While continuing to dance in California, she eventually moved into modeling and, after signing with the agency LA Direct Models, posed for shoots with erotic photographer Holly Randall.[2]

Karter entered the adult film industry in September 2008.[5] Her first scene was with Johnny Sins for Naughty America.[2][6] In regard to her stage name, Karter has stated that Kagney was her real first name (her father named her after James Cagney) and Linn was her real middle name.[citation needed] She chose Karter as her surname because it "just fit perfectly."[3]

In 2009 she was chosen as the Penthouse Pet of the Month for June,[2] and appeared on the covers of Hustler in April and Adult Video News in June.[2][5][7] She was the most searched pornstar in FreeOnes.com in April, with more than 145,000 searches,[8] was also elected the Twistys Treat of the month,[9] and entered Fame Registry list of the top most popular pornstars.[10]

She also was featured on the cover of Holly Randall's photo book Erotic Dream Girls, which was published in October 2009.[11] In January 2010, she signed an exclusive performing contract with the production company Zero Tolerance Entertainment.[12]

In 2012, Kagney took part in Louis Theroux´s Twilight of the Porn Stars, a BBC documentary about the porn industry, its struggling to compete with free internet alternatives, and the lives of famous porn stars.[13]
