Meet Carter Winter, the first country artist signed to Roc Nation!
Since its inception Roc Nation has been synonymous with hip hop and R&B. Its roster of talent reads like a who’s who in the industry. Every time I look up I see a new big name artist rocking the paper plane hat. However, it looks like Jigga Man and the powers that be over at Roc Nation are shaking things up a bit. In a bold move by what has been painted an “urban” a&r and management house, they’re busting down the doors into a new genre with up-and-coming country singer Carter Winter.
Hailing from Ohio, Carter isn’t your typical cowboy hat wearing, pick-up driving crooner here to sing the blues. Instead we’re talking about a baby faced, tattooed-up artist that is poised to be the next big thing in country music. We happened to catch up with Carter at the 2017 Made in America Music Festival. Check out our two-part interview as Carter Winter speaks about being the only country act at the festival and his dream collaboration with Rihanna!
