Carter Sampson is an Okie-born singer/songwriter with a big country voice and songs to match.Her full-length studio album, Wilder Side, was released in May 2016 through Proper Music Distribution. Like its predecessor it features the heady handywork of producer/multi-instrumentalist Travis Linville, who, like Sampson, has a unique sound all his own.

She’s the founder and director of Oklahoma City’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, which always partners with non profit organisations that empower girls and women through music education.The inspiring artist also averages about 220 shows annually – in areas like Oklahoma and Arkansas, as well as Colorado, New Mexico and Texas.

But as the self-penned ‘Queen of Oklahoma,’ Sampson’s red boots are happiest when they’re on her home turf.Though she travels for the love of making music, she’s no stranger to awards.

She was named a Top 12 Finalist in the 2012 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest and performed at Lincoln Center in New York. This year, she won first place in the general category of the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest in Wilkesboro, N.C. – with her song “Wild Bird”, which was additionally released by Pinecastle Records.

Carter Sampson – the self-penned “Queen Of Oklahoma” – is heading in her red boots to Glasgow for a show in May 2018.

Carter, whose fourth album Wilder Side has brought her music to a much wider and hugely appreciative audience, plays The Glad Café on the city’s southside on May 18, with support from Lauren Barth and Jesse Aycock.

It will be the opening night of a UK tour for Carter, who usually plays around 220 gigs a year.

Wilder Side, with its overarching themes of “heartbreak and highways,” is her fourth, full-length album and it’s rammed with soulful and soft country sounds.

Critics have praised her pure country output while making justified comparisons to the likes of Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris.

Carter, currently working on new material, is also the founder and director of Oklahoma City’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, which partners with non-profit organisations to empower girls and women through music education.

“She sings with conviction and writes with honesty, detailing her own lonesome heart and gypsy soul in darker moments but also lightening up with her offbeat desire to become the queen of Oklahoma” Rob Adamd- The Herald

Jesse Aycock and Lauren Barth, both Oklahoma residents and signed to Horton Records, will be performing songs from their albums as a duo.
