Matt Carson

Making country music sad again

A throwback to when country music was country.  Matt Carson is a singer and songwriter who is not afraid to write and perform traditional sounding country music.  Totally blind since birth, he learned to play guitar and bass at the age of seven by playing along with music he heard on the radio.  Growing up in Charleston, South Carolina, he spent every Saturday night listening to local radio and requesting sad songs.  So much so that he was finally told by the local radio station that they would only play a request from him if it was an upbeat song.  

The married father of four has spent the past four years recording and performing a combination of original and classic country tunes with unapologetic grit to keep traditional country music alive.  Be sure to catch him and his band this year for a genuine country music show and stream his music on all streaming platforms.
