Aaron Carter makes his debut with a 24-song album- This Town

Let me introduce you to Aaron Carter. Aaron is a singer and songwriter making his mark as an emerging artist and quickly becoming one to watch. This didn't start out as a review piece, but I have listened to This Town many times and am impressed with the quality and raw talent Aaron has in his vocals and songwriting. I met Aaron through a mutual friend a few years ago after they had written a few songs together. Aaron Carter is also an avid fisherman, and catfishing is his favorite pastime. Showing his dedication to his musical craft, he recently sold his fishing kayak to invest in new sound equipment.

His songwriting talent has been escalated by the cowriters in his debut project, This Town, a 24-song album released in mid-February. Aaron Carter seems a much more seasoned artist than he is. Let me discuss some of the songs on this album and give a shout-out to the talent shown in this debut. In this collection, each song paints a visible picture, some of where and how he grew up in Rockwood, Tennessee, starting with the title track, This Town. Then some songs are more about the life he leads, the hobbies he likes, and the lessons he learned in this small town living (Homegrown Country, Hit Rewind). Aaron co-wrote 5th Generation Redneck about his family with Jesse Scarbrough. My Friend, Fairytale Kind of Love and Love Me Tonight are the handiwork of a collaboration with Jeremy Neely @neelymusic. Neely and Carter also worked together on filming the acoustic video for Love Me Tonight in Manchester, TN. After hearing Aaron singing on social media several years ago, Jeremy Neely encouraged Aaron to write and release music, introducing him to his producer, Jake O’Neill @jakeoneillvocal.

Aaron is playing nearly 60 shows per year and focusing on college towns in the southern and southeastern states. Shows in states including North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, West Virginia, Florida, and Texas are in the works for 2024. The tour list is available on his website. Aaron Carter won the Country Rising Star and Song of the Year ( for Fairy Tale Kind of Love) from Who's Hoo: Independent Country Music Countdown. Aaron's ultimate goal is to move into music full-time and retire from his duties as the driver for the ambulance. Thankfully his schedule has worked well with his music career.

Thank you Aaron Carter for sharing your stories, and music and letting me get to know you a little better. It was my pleasure to chat with you In A Country Minute!
