Noted as one of Nashville’s most popular indie artists on the rise, Cort Carpenter has been making a name for himself and selling out shows around the country. Cort was named ‘Male Entertainer of the Year” at the 2017 Josie Music Awards and was again a nominee in 18’ & 19’. Although unsigned, he has worked his way on to the main stage of some of the country’s biggest music festivals, and this year was featured at Live Nation’s Watershed on the ‘Next from Nashville’ stage. Cort continues to break down barriers as an indie artist and is gaining the attention of industry folks around Music City.
In 2019, he self-released three radio singles (Ex ‘Em, Electricity, Dollar Store) as well as a collaboration (Safe Zone), with world renown country DJ, Dee Jay Silver. All singles have had some success at country radio this year, and currently, Cort’s last single ‘Dollar Store’, is quickly moving up the Music Row charts here in Nashville. His newest single ‘One Thing’ is out now and is already a fan favorite.
Cort’s 2019 ‘Electricity’ Tour was a major success and concluded in December. Playing over 150 dates around the country throughout the year, fans packed into venues to see Cort and the band when they came through their respected cities. Some of the tour highlights included the Oregon Jamboree, Watershed Music Festival, and the world famous Gulf Shores Shrimp Fest. Not to forget, Cort sold out his 5th consecutive CMA Fest fan club party last June.
Country fans are always looking for music that they can relate to and Cort is highly conscious of that when creating music of his own. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, he brings a unique quality to the country music scene with a strong yet heartfelt voice that sets him apart from anyone in the genre.
On the home front, Cort enjoys hanging out with his friends and family and spending time with his wife, Kelly, whom he married in May 17th, 2014. This year was very tough on the family as Cort lost both of his beloved dogs. Cort also heads his own foundation, Cort Carpenter Cares, which launched in 2015. This organization assists homeless animals & people.
