Carter is a regular on the Texas radio charts. His new single “Ocean” is out June 18, with a video soon to follow. He says he was inspired by Mark Chesnutt, John, Michael Montgomery and Garth Brooks. You can hear it in his rich, supple voice. He graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor of science in construction science.

Why we should pay attention to you: Had our first top 10 on Texas radio last year and spent all year writing and recording two additional full albums that are ready to go!

Why it’s important for people to support local/indie art right now: 2020 was devastating to so many, but the music industry and artists were almost completely without work for most of the year.  Many are still without work. As a community, we need all of the help we can get to help the industry and its artists get back on their feet.
