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: Evans brings the cheer – What's a country song without drinking? Morgan Evans seems to have gotten the missive loud and clear as a good chunk of his songs incorporate libations into the mix. And when the Australian-bred singer isn't confronting drinking, he's dealing with matters of the heart, but in keeping with the positive attitude he purveyed, love is most... »»»
Concert Review: Lambert smiles, dances the night away – Miranda Lambert didn't perform "Tin Man," one of her best, but also one of her saddest songs during this Wildcard tour stop. It's a song sung from the perspective of one who is sad that she has a heart that can be broken. That's not the current condition of Lambert's heart, though. She's apparently in a good... »»»
