Carson Peters and Iron Mountain has quickly become one of the most energetic and hottest bluegrass bands in the business, making numerous trips to the Grand Ole Opry and multiple international appearances. Their traditional bluegrass style and a cappella arrangement are a refreshing reminder that the bluegrass of old is alive and well.
The band is made up of Carson and Jamie Peters, a father and son duo from Piney Flats, along with another father and son duo in Ben and Eric Marshall from Mount Airy, N.C., Austin Tate from Marion, Va., and James McDowell from Hendersonville, N.C.
The boys give God all the glory for allowing them to accomplish what they have and trust his plan to guide them through the future.
Carson is only 18 years old, but has made the most of his young career. In 2011 at the age of eight, he made a guest appearance on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in which he performed for Leno and Betty White. A few years later, in 2014, Ricky Skaggs made one of Peters’ biggest dreams a reality, inviting him to perform “Blue Moon of Kentucky” at the Grand Ole Opry. In 2018 he again made the trip back to Nashville to perform at the 52nd CMA Awards Show during Skaggs’ Country Music Hall of Fame induction performance.
Most recently, Peters was a contestant on NBC’s “The Voice.” He is currently touring as a solo artist playing classic country music.
