“I hope to be a positive influence and role model to others through my music and my actions.”
Itâ€™s been a big year of growth for Carson Lueders and his music since first appearing here on Rivenmasterâ€™s Place.Â Carsonâ€™s fan base has exploded and is reaching around the globe. His YouTube channel continues to gain new subscribers daily and his fan base is now made up from faithful Carson Lueders fans from 109 different countries!Â (There are 196 total countries so thatâ€™s over Â½ the world watching Carsonâ€™s videos)Â It took about 3 years to get his 1st million YouTube views but only 3 months to get his 2nd million!!!Â Now he has gone over the 3 million mark averaging 10-20K views a day.
Because Carson is so young, having just turned 11, he seems to be standing out and separating himself from the pack of older teen boys that are competing in the saturated music market. Â He is constantly being compared to other boys in the industry and often being called the next Justin Bieber, little Cody Simpson, or baby Niall Horan.Â But many of his fans assure him he is not the next of anything but the FIRST & ONLY Carson! Everyday fans send him words of encouragement, compliments and even marriage proposals.Â Carson appreciates it all, including all the fan videos and picture collages.
Carson has been playing and performing since age five. He has been a guest on local radio since age six, and has been featured on the local news throughout the years. At just the age of nine he also won a national songwriting contest.
Although he started out playing mostly country music, Carson is now leaning more towards pop music. Some have even said that Carson could be a cross over artist like Taylor Swift.
His Mother exclaimed;
â€œItâ€™s been a great honor for many artists to acknowledge and complement Carson on the covers songs he has done.Â Some artists including Keith Urban, Aaron Carter and Australian teen Cody Simpson have even helped to promote Carson’s music through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.â€
I asked Carson if he would do an exclusive interview for this article and Iâ€™m pleased that he took the time to do so.Â The following is an excerpt from that interview:
