New and Noteworthy: Carter Winter

Fitting every bit the part of the man in black, Carter Winter is country music’s modern traditionalist. Singing heartfelt and relatable songs landscaping heartbreak and the American dream poured over ice, the singer/songwriter from rural Ohio has seen firsthand the effects of connecting with an audience through a fresh sound that like Carter himself, is surprisingly familiar, yet raw and honest.

With his rich, traditional country vocal and compelling live performance, Carter has gained recognition from some of the biggest names in country music and opened  for such artists such as Sam Hunt, Chase Rice and Travis Tritt.

From behind his guitar and sleeves of tattoos, Carter began playing local bars around his hometown and quickly grew an incredible fan base of loyal listeners from California to the Carolinas. First well-known for his cover songs of artists that inspired him early on (Garth Brooks, George Strait), Carter’s ability to take three chords and his own truth and deliver a compelling live performance contributed to the incredible success of his first independent EP released in 2015 (“Some Kind of Fire”).   It was followed by “The Whiskey in Me,” his first full-length album, which firmly established Carter’s brand of country.

Carter recently completed his second studio album, “Temptation,” with multi-Grammy Award-winning producer Chad Carlson (Taylor Swift, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell). “Temptation,” the title track, was written by Carter Winter, Taylor Phillips (co-writer of Luke Combs #1 hit, “Hurricane,”) John Gourney and Matt Roy.

 “I’ve really strived to create something fresh and unique, Carter tell CMTT.” Nearly everything has already been done but, as a songwriter, I try hard to say something new. I feel that with “Temptation,” every song is a work of art, and I’m excited to see how people are moved by the new music.”

The new album released November 2, 2018. A talented songwriter as well as singer, Winter co-wrote all seven tracks on the new offering. Winter’s new single, “Skylines,” is currently being utilized by Ford in their “Ford Presents” advertising campaign which kicks off Oct. 15 and runs through the first week in December.
