Michael Carter is one of Nashville’s hottest producer/songwriters today. With 27 cuts to date by artists such as Chris Young, Craig Campbell, and Michael Ray, in recent years his resume grew to include No. 1 hits by Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell. He also produced Swindell’s self-titled debut album.
Bryan has recorded 12 songs written by Carter, his longtime friend, lead guitarist and band leader, including the hit “Roller Coaster” (Carter/Swindell). Carter’s song “Move” will appear on Bryan’s Kill The Lights album (Aug. 7) one of the most anticipated releases of 2015.
