Artist, songwriter and producer Shy Carter has reached all corners of the industry with his early success. With credits that span Kane Brown’s “Heaven” to Charlie Puth’s “One Call Away,” Carter is one of the most formidable up-and-coming talents in Nashville and beyond. He is among the writers behind Billy Currington's “It Don't Hurt Like it Used To,” Sugarland’s smash hit “Stuck Like Glue” and Rob Thomas’ single “Someday.” In addition to his feature on Tim McGraw’s “Way Down,” Carter has collaborated with Keith Urban on both “Never Comin’ Down” and “My Wave.” Named to Variety’s 2018 Hitmakers list, he has also worked with Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, Nelly and more. His roots in gospel, jazz, R&B and soul developed into an early career in hip-hop, but his gift for storytelling and love of organic instrumentation led to a natural transition into country music. Now, with a transcendent style perfectly suited to the times, he’s ready to stand on his own as a country artist. His soul-infused sound spans the eight tracks of his debut EP, The Rest of Us, available now. Billboard lauded his “top-shelf songwriting and versatile vocals,” while Taste of Country praised the project as “thoughtfully [stretching] and [challenging] the borders of the country genre, introducing elements of soul, R&B and pop that not only showcase [his] love for those different styles, but also his deep knowledge of how they can be braided into a traditional country sound.” The born entertainer is a 2022 CMT “Listen Up” artist and was previously named an artist to watch by Amazon Music, MusicRow magazine, Pandora, Sounds Like Nashville and more. Carter will be featured in the Amazon Music Original Documentary For Love & Country, premiering April 7.
