Raised on the poetry of old time twang Lloyd McCarter has been immersed in traditional
country music his entire life. Lloyd’s mother and father were both from musical
families; Lloyd’s destiny was set into motion when the two families were joined
by their love of music. At The budding age of eight Lloyd started to play
guitar. Spending every weekend in a VFW or small town bar room, Lloyd would
occasionally sing or play along until he would fall asleep against the speakers
that were emitting honky-tonk lullabies sung by his father. Fresh out of high
school Lloyd joined a touring act playing pedal steel. After seven years Lloyd
decided to live without fear and began an uncertain journey to pursue his true
calling. Honky-tonk.
