International Re-Release of: “Good News”, “Greatest Hits”, & “Best of Scott Carter” Coming Late Spring 2016!

During my long career in the music and entertainment business, I have recorded six (6) full album projects; one in Australia; one in Ft. Smith, Arkansas; three in Nashville, Tennessee; and one in Orlando, Florida.

Since signing with Tate Music Group (TMG Records) in Mustang, Oklahoma (a boutique, well connected, state-of-the-art, and contemporary major record label who has been signing many seasoned Country and Gospel artists who have been experiencing a renaissance in their careers; one of whom is yours truly)…..three (3) of my album projects have been re-worked, re-released, and re-marketed, and re-distributed worldwide. They are: “Going Home”, “Classic Country”, & “Undeniably, Scott Carter”. All three are available to the international public for purchase; digital downloads or physical CD’s.

The last three are presently ‘in the works’ and will be re-released, re-marketed, and re-distributed worldwide on the TMG label late Spring or early Summer 2016! They are: “Good News”, “Scott Carter’s Greatest Hits”, & “Best of Scott Carter”! Stay tuned!

Here is a quick synopsis of all 6 of my album projects:

!. “Good News”. My very first album project recorded in Perth, West Australia in the late 1970’s in the heat of the revolutionary ‘Jesus Movement’. It is a full blown, Gospel album (more specifically, ‘Jesus Movement Gospel’ album). “Good News” refers to the Gospel…and, it was recorded at Sweetcorn Recording Studio in downtown Perth. And, yes, the backing vocals were done by the studio’s own, ‘Cornflakes’! During this time in my career, I was one of the Top 3 Contemporary Christian Recording Artists in Australia; and, I opened for and worked with many of the legends of that era; Honeytree, Jamie Owens-Collins, Randy Mathews, Mike Warnke, Barry McGuire, Cliff Richard, and others. I think you will really enjoy this album!

2. “Going Home”. My second album project recorded in Ft. Smith, Arkansas in 1988. It features some of Arkansas’ best musicians and is a collection of country, gospel, inspirational, & patriotic songs. These were some of the most requested songs by friends, fans, & family as I toured and performed around the world back then. I believe you will probably sing along with me when listening to this album!

3. “Scott Carter’s Greatest Hits”. My third album project (initially entitled, “Feed The Children”) was recorded in Nashville at Chelsea Studios and Hilltop Studios in 1990. It was literally shipped to every Country and Country-friendly Radio Station in the world and garnered rave reviews from radio and the music industry, in general. It ended up yielding 4 charted singles in Country Music and 1 in Gospel Music; both in the USA and overseas! Additionally, it was nominated for many Music Industry awards. And, the song, ‘Feed The Children’ received so much international attention, it led to my being nominated for and winning “Entertainer of the Year – International” at the 1996 Academy of Independent Music Awards Show in Nashville! I am sure you will fall in love with the heart-felt, common-man, salt-of-the-earth songs on this album!

4. “Classic Country”. My fourth album project was recorded in Nashville in 1992 at both Chelsea Studios and Hilltop Studios and features many of Nashville’s best musicians and the backing vocals were done by the Carol Lee Singers from the Grand Ole Opry (who also sang backup on my ‘Greatest Hits’ album). It truly is traditional, classic country music at its best. Some of the songs from this album project, over the past 2 years, have garnered a lot of radio airplay in Australia and New Zealand! One listen, and I know you will connect with these pure, down home, country music tunes!

5. “Undeniably, Scott Carter”. My fifth album project was also recorded in Nashville in 1996 at Reflection Studio and was produced by one of Nashville’s legendary producers who has worked with the “Who’s Who” in Music City, over the years. Some of the players (musicians) who worked with me on this project are CMA Award winners and/or have toured with many of Country & Pop’s top acts! Cash Box Magazine approached us a couple of years ago and wanted to review the album, so we sent them a copy. They gave us 4 out of 5 stars and wrote, “…we would put this album up there with Tim McGraw & early Garth Brooks…”! Wow! What an honor! And, this album/CD was shipped to every Country and Country-friendly radio station in the world during 2012 and 2013. This resulted in my doing numerous live, in person or live via phone interviews with multi-media outlets all over the world! I truly believe you will enjoy this unique album project whose genre has been described as “Rock and Blues Country”!

6. “Best of Scott Carter”. My sixth album project is a compilation album/CD which features 21 of my best songs from all of the albums. It was re-worked, edited, and re-mastered in Orlando, Florida in 2001. The name speaks for itself!

So…there you have it, my friends!

And…as always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continual love and support!

Love & God Bless,

Scott Carter

Summer 2015 Was A Major Milestone For Scott Carter!

“Direction is more important than speed. We are so busy looking at our speedometers that we forget the milestone.” ~ Anonymous

“Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead.” ~ Nelson Mandela

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

For those of you who follow me…follow my music…follow my career…you know that I have been enjoying and celebrating a Renaissance in my music & entertainment career over the past 6+ years, now. And, all of this has come at a time in my life when I had actually thought that this part and phase of my “career life” was basically just a wonderfully memorable past history. So, needless to say, I am humbled, thankful, amazed, appreciative, & honored to be currently experiencing this rebirth.

Also, being a mature individual, I am totally aware that such things do not just magically happen without the love, encouragement, and support of many people; my family, my friends, my fans, and my support group. Thank you, one and all…from the bottom of my heart.

During the Summer of 2015, which has just come and gone, Scott Carter Music reached new heights and thresholds. During this time frame, we have been No. 1 in Florida; Top 10 in the USA; and, Top 15 Worldwide on the premiere ReverbNation Music Charts. And, we had held the No. 1 Position on ReverbNation in Florida for over 6 years.

Due to the love and support of family, friends, fans, my record label, my promo team, radio, multi-media, et cetera … Scott Carter Music has been heard and promoted and discovered all over the world in nearly every country. And, our fan base has exploded with new fans. Obviously, the Internet (World Wide Web) has made most of this possible. Back when I had Charted Singles in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, such things did not exist or were in their infancy. My first two charted singles back then were actually shipped to radio, worldwide, as 45 rpm records; then along came CD’s (Compact Discs).

Who would have thought that over 20 years later my music and material would have garnered such intense interest and been introduced…for the very first time…to brand new fans all over the world; all nationalities, all tongues, all walks of life, & all ages. Thank you, thank you, thank you…one and all!

I will ever be eternally grateful for this wonderful and almost unbelievable experience! For me, it is an amazing thing to know that at any given moment of any given day someone, somewhere is listening to one of my songs either on terrestrial radio, satellite radio, internet radio, a “cloud” (I still don’t understand all I know about that…lol!), a digital download, and/or a CD. Wow!

And, I thank all of you who have contacted me to share with me how very much my music has touched your lives…that means more to me than anything.

So, we celebrate the Summer of 2015! No. 1 in Florida. Top 10 in the USA. Top 15 in the World!

Love and God Bless,

Scott Carter 🙂

The ReverbNation Charts

Due to the wonder and magic and lightning speed of The Internet (Cyber Space, The World Wide Web), new horizons have opened up for Performing Artists.

Back in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, the internet was in its infancy as regards the music and entertainment industry. Recognizable and respected music charting systems/formats were mostly associated with music trade magazines who were well connected and intertwined with radio (radio stations, DJ’s, MD’s, PD’s, station sponsored concerts and events, et cetera). Such trades/charts were: Billboard, Radio & Records, The Gavin Report, Cash Box, Music Row, The Indie Bullet, and a few lesser known ones.

That is the time period in which I had my 5 charted, hit singles (4 in Country Music; 1 in Gospel Music). And, that was one of the several qualifying factors, for a recording and performing artist, to be accepted into the CMA as a voting member…which I was for many years.

Today…well, things have changed. Sure, the trade charts are still there and very important…especially for the major label acts. But, now, as an Indie Artist, we have something which is dynamic, real time, instant, and based purely on the response and interaction of the listeners/fans; namely, the various Internet-based music platforms with their accompanying charting systems.

There are several out there in Cyber Space, and all have their place and importance. However, The ReverbNation Platform & Charting System is based upon the direct interaction with listeners and fans…internationally!

I have been very fortunate to have held the Number 1 Position on the ReverbNation Country Charts (Indie) in Florida for over 6 years, as of this post. I am deeply grateful; deeply thankful; and very overwhelmed. In fact, as of this week (the week of this post in June 2015), I am: No. 1 in Florida (6+ years straight)…..Top 30 in the USA…..and, Top 40 Internationally!

Launched in 2006, ReverbNation is an online platform that provides tools and opportunities for musicians to manage their careers. Since then, they have introduced a number of applications and services such as the TuneWidget, Band Profile Facebook app, and Promote It. In 2014, ReverbNation developed curation-at-scale technology designed to help locate and evaluate large groups of bands and artists, either for licensing and management opportunities or for larger events like Hard Rock Cafe, Rising, and Summerfest. ReverbNation’s user base currently sits are more than 3.8 million musicians, fans, venues, and labels in more than 250 countries worldwide.

And…(I love this, most of all)…their company slogan is, “Artists First!”.

For those of us who are no longer in or have never been in the Inner Circle of the Major Label, Major Funded, Major Promoted acts…several ‘key’ Cyber Space music/artist platforms with their accompanying charting systems are our opportunity for artistic status, cudos, realistic chart claims, and the like. And, in my opinion (with their spirit, technology, focus, & track record), ReverbNation is the place for an artist to be seen, heard, interacted with, promoted, and acknowledged for his/her work with no-nonsense charting activity. But, get this…not only locally, but state wide, nation wide, and internationally!

I send my personal thanks to Mr. Mike Doernberg, CEO and Mr. Jed Carlson and the whole ReverbNation staff for their vision, love, hard work, and support of artists everywhere.

Sincerely yours,

Scott Carter 🙂

Renaissance Milestone — Country Music Charts — April 2015

Renaissance Milestone — Country Music Charts — April 2015

It was a little over 5 years ago when my music and entertainment career started having a genuine renaissance, worldwide.  As John Travolta told me about 4 years ago when my career was a year into its positive renewal/reawakening, “Scott, once you’ve made your mark…no matter how long ago it was…they (the fans; the public) never, ever forget you!”.

The past 5+ years have been filled with all sorts of positive advances and evolutions in my musical career.  This includes getting radio airplay, again, after all of these years.  Over the past 5 years, I have been honored to obtain radio airplay in countries all over the world.  This includes some terrestrial AM & FM stations, Country Radio, Community Radio, College Radio, Satellite Radio, and…something that did not exist back when I had my 5 Hit Singles back in the late 80’s and early 90’s; namely, Internet Radio.

Well, this week in April 2015, we have reached a milestone!  In addition to still getting various radio airplay all over the world as described above, we are currently experiencing an amazing presence on several well respected Internet Radio Stations two of which I will now mention:

Well, I’m honored and amazed and thankful!

2015: A New & Exciting Year!

Happy New Year 2015!

Life’s evolutions and unfoldings never cease to amaze me! And, as most artists (of all sorts; not just artists in the music business) will tell you, being an artist is all about seasons of ‘feast or famine’. One day you’re on top of the world and traveling, recording, performing, being the focus of multi-media attention and fans…the next day, well…you’re not. The key, I have learned, is to just stay constant and artistic and focused and determined; never, ever give up (after all, you ARE an artist; not trying to become one).

Having been a musician, singer, songwriter, recording artist, performing artist, & actor for over a quarter of a century I have seen my own career reach high peaks and low valleys. Nonetheless, whether on top of the mountain or sojourning through the deepest valley, I have always been “me”; the mountain top and/or the valley does not determine me; it’s just a temporary or seasonal shift of location.

Over the past 5 years (2010-2014) I have seen a steadily increasing evolution and unfolding of my Music/Entertainment Career…from the bottom of the valley floor to an ever ascending climb back up the proverbial mountain. Again, I have always been and will always be “me”…it’s just that my ‘location’ (valley vs mountain) has shifted, again as it has done several times over the past quarter of a century.

The past 5 years has been and continues to be a fun and amazing ride! I now have a major record label deal with international marketing and distribution. I now have an international fan club that continues to grow week by week. And, I am constantly find myself in the media’s eye. I am thankful. I am honored.

From garage bands in High School to touring bands in College to Nashville Recording Artist and International Performing & Charting Artist throughout nearly 3 decades, it has been and continues to be a fun, amazing, and interesting journey!
Even after many years (due to Internet Radio and our massive Internet ‘Presence’), I have been topping various charts, again…amazing! And, we have held the No. 1 Position on the dynamic music/artist platform, ReverbNation (Country genre; Florida) for 6 years, straight…amazing!

So…to each and every one of you who has been involved in making this a reality for me over the past 5 to 6 years…and, to each and every one of my friends/fans…a Big, Heart-Felt, THANK YOU! 🙂
