The Carter Twins grew up in Akron, Ohio, and were surrounded by music from the time they were born. Their mother worked in country radio and encouraged their interest. Zach stole time at her piano and getting some vocal coaching from SESAC affiliate singer/songwriter/publisher Stephen Davey, while she taught Josh “Stairway to Heaven” on the guitar. In 2008, the Carter Twins scored a chance meeting with executive in Los Angeles, who ultimately led them to CMT.1 The brothers recently completed high school and moved to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue their music career full-time under the development of CMT Music, as the first act on the new label.2 They are twenty years old.
Their debut single with the CMT Music label was released in March 2009, and reached a peak of #54 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs. They were reported to having been working on their self-titled debut album with producer Frank Rogers, with an expected release date of August 2009.3 The duo wrote over 80 songs for the album, including co-writes from the members of Lady Antebellum.4 However, on September 22, 2009, it was announced that the Carter Twins had parted ways with CMT.
Although their self-titled debut album wasn’t released, the duo released a 4-song digital EP titled Carter Twins on November 3, 2009. The EP features their single “Heart Like Memphis.”
