article imageCarlton Anderson talks new single 'Drop Everything,' NASH FM 94.7 Special

Rising country artist Carlton Anderson chatted with Digital Journal about his new radio single "Drop Everything," appearing at NASH FM 94.7 in New York, and he shared his dream female duet choices in the country genre.
"This is one of the songs that I didn't write that is on this project," he said. "It just happened to be my first single. I have been writing songs for a long time. We heard the song three days before we went into the studio. It was something that we didn't have and a subject matter that we were looking for. The team and I loved it and it was a no-brainer to cut it and put our spin on it."
He continued, "I am from Texas, and I grew up on fiddle and steel guitars. I never lost sight of who I was, and how I wanted my music to sound. I am honored to be a vessel in the country music genre."
Anderson had nothing but the greatest remarks about NASH FM 94.7's Hackensack Meridian Health Stage 17 in New York, where he was interviewed by radio personality Jesse Addy. "That was a great time," he admitted. "I had never been to New York before. I have never seen anything like it. New York is like a movie scene. It was really cool. On top of that, the radio station has a beautiful studio that we played in, and everybody at NASH FM 94.7 was really nice. It was a really good time."
On the impact of technology on the country music business, Anderson said, "It is different and it is pretty crazy. Being a songwriter, I have a lot of songwriting buddies that are somewhat in the trenches when it comes to songwriting royalties. It is a little bit of a problem. Spotify is great to get your music out and you can have every song in the world on your phone with a few clicks away, and you can make playlists, and it is so convenient."
Anderson continued, "On the downside, a lot of my friends are struggling on the songwriting side because technology has moved so fast. Hopefully, things will start to look up for them on the technology end. Spotify has really changed the industry since it has leveled the playing field. There are no rules anymore, and to some extent, that is really cool."
A Cypress, Texas native, he listed Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, and Lee Ann Womack as his dream female duet choices. "I really admire what they do and I just love their voices," he said. "I would be over the moon to someday sing with Lee Ann Womack. I love her voice. That would be so cool."
His new single "Drop Everything" is available on iTunes and on Spotify. "I hope the fans enjoy it and have a good time with it. This is the music that I moved away from home to make. I am glad they are accepting of it. There is plenty more music on the way," he hinted.
