Born in the foothills of Arkansas’ Ozark Mountains, Carson Aaron’s passion for music was evident early on. Even before he was old enough to strum a guitar, he could be found sitting in his dad’s banjo case watching him play. As soon as his fingers could strum a chord, Carson was teaching himself every instrument he could get his hands on.
Ask anyone in central Arkansas and they’ll tell you that they remember Carson as the enthusiastic little boy who stood on a chair while he played the upright bass in his dad’s bluegrass band.
Carson lives by the words of Briscoe Darling, the gruff band leader of the infamous family group from the ‘Andy Griffith Show’, who once said “You got time to breathe, you got time for music.”
Influenced by his dad’s passion for bluegrass music and his mom’s love for country and southern gospel, Carson developed a musical style that combines the sounds of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Bryan White and Ricky Skaggs. The 18-year old is often joined by his sisters to perform at local festivals and churches where their impressive harmonies are front and center.
A talented songwriter and vocalist, Carson has often been compared to Vince Gill thanks to his ability to tell a story through song. As an artist Carson’s ultimate goal is to bring people joy through his music. He hopes to one day grace the stage of the Ryman auditorium as his idols before him have done.
