This week’s New Artist Spotlight is Texas native, Carlton Anderson. Anderson, who refers to Willie Nelson as “his drug,” fell in love with country music at a very young age.
While attending Belmont University, he began playing at honky-tonks and bars in downtown Nashville. Billboard described Anderson as a new country star who’s sound is reminiscent on “old-school” country, but Anderson just describes his music as, “If I’ve lived it, I can sing about it. If I haven’t lived it, I’m not a good faker.”
His most recent single, “Drop Everything,” is a sentimental song that Anderson describes as “a long song about a guy speaking up for the girl that he wants and taking a chance” (Drop everything, your plans, your man / I don’t see a ring on your pretty little hand / Drop some plastic on the tab, my Chevy into gear / Drop your keys by my door, your coat on my floor / And we’ll go from there, drop everything).
Listen to “Drop Everything” on YouTube below:
