Road To Roosky with Sam Bush

*** "When I left Lester, I was ready to play some different kinds of music on the banjo, I was tired of playing Cripple Creek all the time.. I always thought the banjo should be heard in different types of music". Earl Scruggs (check out Tim's tribute to Earl on the News Page)

Carter Brothers March. 2012

Hi friends and fans. Man we sure ended the year with a boom! Our latest album The Road To Roosky is going viral around the entire planet these days. Our first album for Compass Records was released in November (normally not an optimum time to release new records) and crawled and clawed onto the radio charts and the music press media. That all changed in the post-holidays in January. We suddenly found ourselves in the Top 50 on the International Americana Roots-Rock Radio Music Chart at #43 with the likes of Neil Young, Ry Cooder, The Black Keys, Elton John etc&this week Feb. 14 we are at #31. The worldwide music media hasnt called us darlings yet but never the less, pretty heady stuff. Brother Tim and myself are very proud of the work we did writing and recording The Road To Roosky. It is the most focused and ambitious project we have done to date. We have never written and recorded just for radio before and we didnt on this Roosky album either. We write as we wish and to satisfy ourselves and our ever growing fans first. This thing just seemed to click to DJs around the world in this genre of music. While we have always put out the highest quality albums that we can achieve, on this record we learned the importance of being focused. Im sure the best we have to offer is yet to come. NOTE: Adding our dear friend Sam Bush as the fifth member of the band on The Road To Roosky was not a fluke. We were writing the songs and arranging them with Sams parts in mind&.as well as the two tunes with friends Tim OBrien and Ferrell Stowe.

2013 promise to be a pretty incredible time for us. Compass Records and their wonderkind PR department will be submitting The Road To Roosky to NARAS for Grammy Award consideration in several categories in 2013 and to the Americana Music Association and to IBMA in various categories for awards in 2012-2013. We are also very excited about bassist/writer/teacher Adam Chaffins joining the Carter Brothers Band this year! Adam is a fine bassist and a great guy & fits in with us perfectly. We lost 18 year veteran bassist Ross Sermons to a most wonderful woman who became his wife, she is from Hobart, Tasmania(below Down Under), Ross has citizenship now and they reside there. Veteran Carter Brothers drummer/percussionist Dann Sherrill (think every album since year 2000 remains with the band, thank goodness!

Our Grammy Award winning TreeHouse studio in our home here outside Nashville produced more than a half-dozen albums last year and may top that this year! Our dear friend Mike Scotts wonderful new album with Vince Gill, Sonia Isaacs, Carl Jackson(and other greats) Take Me Lord and Use Me was a two year project here at the TreeHouse and is up for several Dove Awards this year!

By the way&.the rumors are true. We are currently seeking new Management/Booking to handle the crush of new touring business and helping guide our newfound career since we took it up a notch or two. Contact us directly or thru our publicist

*NOTE: Be on the watch out for Where The Green Grass Meets the Bluegrass a collaboration The Carter Brothers undertook with our dear friends & Irish Legends Barney McKenna, Gerry OConnor, John Doyle & Cathy Jordon along with ourselves, Alison Brown and Ross Sermons. Scheduled Spring release also on Compass Records.

See ya on the road in 2013!

Danny Reid Carter & Tim Carter

"Blood related and born into the legendary Carter Family legacy". See story on the "ABOUT" page.


Electrifying and hard driving original rock/folk/blues and new~grass music......Superb songwriters on a level all their own......Stunningly precise musicianship performed with a seemingly effortless and totally joyful demeanor. The Carter Brothers are intense onstage without trying to be and the whole time they make you feel as though you're sitting in their living room for your own private jam session. Brilliant! They're the real deal folks"......Dave McAdams, Dublin Times

"Masters of their craft. Incomparable. True American originals, these guys"....Winston-Salem Journal

"Tim and Dan are blood related to A.P., Sarah and Maybelle Carter but they don't make a big deal out of it. Like their momma, who taught them to rinse collard greens in the Maytag, they make their new old timey music with tried and true ingredients and modern appliances. There might be dumbek and wah~wah banjo but it still comes out "Pretty Polly". Loosen your screws a few turns and enjoy the music of the Carter Brothers"!
-Tim O'Brien

*In a world rife with gifted musicians, Tim and Danny Carter not only stand alone, but manage to raise the bar for everyone in the process.
