ABOUT

     At only 17 years old, Carson Peters already has many years of experience under his belt. His musical journey started at the age of 3, when he picked up a fiddle for the first time. Not long after that, at the age of 4, he was already making guest appearances around his hometown area of Piney Flats, Tennessee. As he began to make a name for himself, he joined a local Old-time and Bluegrass band, The Rockhouse String Band, based out of Gate City, Virginia. After developing a feel for playing in a band, Carson decided to branch out with a band of his own.  At 8 years of age, Carson formed The Fiddlin' Carson Peters Band, which consisted of his father Jamie, along with Tom and Bobbie Dier, from Greeneville, Tennessee. A few years down the road, Carson formed his current band, Carson Peters and Iron Mountain. The band consists of his father Jamie, Austin Tate, from Marion, Virginia, and the father/son duo of Eric and Ben Marshall, from Mount Airy, North Carolina. Recently, Carson has decided to step in to the Country genre, delivering a mixture of contemporary Country music and the Bluegrass sounds that he grew up on.

     Throughout Carson's young career, many opportunities have presented themselves. In 2011, he was invited to appear on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in which he performed a song for Leno and Betty White. A few years later, in 2014, Ricky Skaggs invited Carson to come with him to Nashville for his Grand Ole Opry debut, where he sang "Blue Moon of Kentucky" and received a standing ovation from the Opry crowd. In 2016, Carson made his second appearance on national television as he was featured on NBC's Little Big Shots with Steve Harvey. Carson made his latest appearance on national television in 2018 at the 52nd CMA Awards Show, where he played a fiddle solo on "Country Boy" for Ricky Skaggs' Country Music Hall of Fame induction performance. Carson is very grateful to God for giving him these opportunities, and hopes to use them along with any future opportunities to honor Him.
