Backstage Block Party: Carter Winter & Josh Melton
Fitting every bit the part of the man in black, Carter Winter is country musics modern traditionalist. As he sings 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. 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), Carters ability to take three chords and his own truth and deliver a compelling live performance has contributed to the incredible success of Some Kind of Fire, his first independent six-song release. With his rich, traditional country vocal and compelling live performance, Carter has gained recognition from some of the biggest names in country music and shared the stage with artists such as Sam Hunt, Chase Rice and Travis Tritt.
Standing 65 with blond hair, blue eyes, and bright smile, Josh Meltons no stranger to any spotlight. His style and stage presence invites his listeners to stay awhile and dance, or sit back and enjoy the show. Critics have called Joshuas career, a wave among ripples in New Country Music. Joshuas music keeps his audiences engaged, enthralled and begging for more. In Nashville, Joshua is collaborating with industry greats and other artists. He is creating, writing, performing, and sharing original music that has gained the respect of industry veterans and pros
