Carter Twins debut single

Monday, January 26, 2009 – The Carter Twins debuted their first ever video for their premiere single Heart Like Memphis on CMT and today. Josh and Zach Carter provide harmonies on the song, which will be available for download on iTunes and Rhapsody beginning Tuesday, Jan. 27.

The video was filmed in Nashville along the banks of the Cumberland River, under the direction of Eric Welch. "I didn't even know our video was up, but our Facebook friends started changing their status and that's how we found out about it," said Josh. "It went up a few days early, and we freaked out."

Zach adds, "We must have watched it 10 times, over and over. All of our friends were texting us."

The Carter Twins played their biggest show yet over the weekend in Milwaukee, Wisc., opening for Phil Vassar to a crowd of roughly 15,000 fans and are gearing up for a coast to coast industry tour in the next few months.

Fresh out of high school, 18-year-old twins opted to delay college and pursue their dream of a music career. They recently relocated to Nashville from South Carolina, and spent the summer writing songs and working on their first album. Under the helm of producer Frank Rogers, who produces Brad Paisley, the Carter Twins' debut album will be released this summer on CMT Music/Meteor 17.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event – The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live. Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»

White embraces "The Hurting Kind" John Paul White, to paraphrase a Steve Earle song, may just be one of the last of the hardcore troubadours. By 'troubadour,' we mean one of those guys that lives to write great songs - more specifically, great country songs - and then get these songs into the ears of folks that... »»»
