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.
The new album was 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,” was utilized by Ford in their “Ford Presents” advertising campaign which
ran Oct. 15 and through the first week in December.
