Carson Peters – About
At just 17 years old, Carson Peters already has many years of experience. His musical journey began at the age of 3, when he took up the violin for the first time. Soon after, at the age of 4, he was a guest in his hometown of Pine Flats, Tennessee. When he started to make a name for himself, he joined The Rockhouse String Band, a local vintage and bluegrass band based in Virginia Gate. After developing a sense of playing in a band, Carson decided to form his own band. At the age of 8, Carson formed The Fiddlin’ Carson Peters Band, which consisted of fathers Jamie, Tom and Bobby Deere from Greenville, Tennessee. A few years later, Carson formed his current band, Carson Peters and Iron Mountain. The band consists of fathers Jamie and Austin Tate from Marion, Virginia, and father-son duo Eric and Ben Marshall from Mount Airy, North Carolina. More recently, Carson has decided to venture into the country music genre, blending contemporary country with the bluegrass he grew up with.
During Carson’s young career, many opportunities have arisen. In 2011, he was invited to appear on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and performed a song for Leno and Betty White. A few years later, in 2014, Ricky Skaggs invited Carson to join him on his Grand Ole Opry debut in Nashville, where he sang “Blue Moon Kentucky” and won an Opry The crowd gave a standing ovation. In 2016, Carson made his second appearance on national television as he appeared on NBC’s Little Big Shots with Steve Harvey. Carson most recently appeared on national television at the 52nd CMA Awards in 2018, where he played solo violin for Ricky Skaggs’ Country Music Hall of Fame induction performance on “Country Boys.” Carson is very grateful to God for these opportunities and wants to use them and any opportunities in the future to honor him.
