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.

Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
