“Temptation,” Carter Winter’s eagerly-anticipated sophomore album, is set for release November 2, 2018, via Average Joes Entertainment. Produced by multi-Grammy-award-winning producer, Chad Carlson (Taylor Swift, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell), pre-order the seven-track album here and instantly receive “Skylines” and “Chaser.” Simultaneously, Winter has extended his “Temptation” tour (see below) and also announced a new partnership with Ford Music. The story behind his song, “Skylines,” is featured in the “Ford Music Presents” series here.
Commenting on his new record, Winter said, “I’m getting closer to where I want to be as an artist. Each album is an incredible learning experience. Each song on this new album is special to me, there is no “B” side. I want listeners to see and feel the music as an experience beyond hearing it. There are a lot of stories, layers and undertones being shared in this creation, and it’s always exciting for me to see the people moved by them.”
An exceptionally talented songwriter as well as vocalist, Winter co-wrote all seven tracks on the new album. Noted Nashville songwriters featured on the album with Winter include Taylor Phillips, John Gurney and Matt Roy on “Temptation,” Tommy Cecil, Jared Mullins and Matt Alderman on “Hands,” Vicky McGehee on “I Got Me,” and others.
“Temptation,” showcases all of the influences that define Carter Winter’s fresh, new country sound. From the R&B influenced, “Hands,” to “Another Lie,” which pays homage to the traditional country sound, to the mischievous “Trouble,” and the heartfelt “Skylines,” Winter’s rich, country vocal resonates and his lyrics pull at the heartstrings.
Winter has been touring nationwide for the past few years and has developed a broad fan base from coast to coast. Already recognized as one of country music’s hottest rising stars, Winter’s catchy song, “Chaser,” has been added to Spotify’s “New Boots” playlist, and “Skylines” is playlisted at major streaming outlets. Both songs have become fan favorites at his live shows.

About Carter Winter
Carter Winter began playing local bars around his Columbus, Ohio hometown and quickly grew a large fan base of loyal listeners from California to the Carolinas. First well-known for his cover songs of artists that inspired him early on (Garth Brooks, George Strait), Carter’s ability to take three chords and his own truth and deliver a compelling live performance contributed to the incredible success of his first independent EP released in 2015 (“Some Kind of Fire”). It was followed by “The Whiskey in Me,” his first full-length album.
