Kim Carson / Bio

Kim Carson’s motto is “Don’t Fear The Twang!”

Growing up in rural Texas and Oklahoma and now based out of New Orleans, Kim’s sound is a gumbo of original high energy roots rock and renegade honky tonk music.

Kim Carson has been named “Best Country Artist” by readers of OffBeat magazine eight times. Carson has made a name for herself as the undisputed “Queen of Louisiana Honky Tonk Music” and distinguished herself as a formidable Country songwriter. After Hurricane Katrina, Carson moved to Texas to form “Buffalo Speedway”, a Renegade Honky Tonk band in 2005. Kim moved back to rebuild her house in New Orleans in 2008.

Kim’s new CD is available at Louisiana Music Factory in New Orleans. wwwlouisianamusicfactory.com and will soon be available on I-tunes and CD Baby. Kim’s 10th CD “Enough Heart Left to Break” is straight up honky-tonk music with a dance hall sound that is full of fiddles and steel guitar.

Kim Carson & The Real Deal
Kim and her new band of Twang loving musicians tour extensively in Europe and have performed at the Country Music Festival in Silkeborg, Denmark / Routes du Rock Festival in Lavardac, France / Country Music Festival Vinstra, Norway /Western Experience – Scheveningen, Netherlands / Country Rendez-Vous in Craponne, France / Mirande among other festivals. Her band “The Real Deal” currently includes New Orleans players Jeb Rault on guitar, Jack Hinson on drums and from Nashville John Kunz on fiddle.

Carson’s music is the real deal country with influences from Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and Loretta Lynn. “She’s less Diva and more Honky Tonk girl.” – Alex Rawls
