Carter & Carter  - ‘CARTER & CARTER have so many runs on the board during the past 10 years that there should be no argument about describing them as Australian Independent country music artists of the decade.” - Country Music Capital News.  Dominating the Independent Country Music Scene in Australia for over 14 years now Carter & Carter (Merelyn & David) have amassed more awards and more chart success than any independent artist in the history of Australian country music.  Their achievements to date include a Golden Guitar, Nine National #1 Hits on Country Music Radio plus another fourteen National Top 10 Hits, an APRA Award for Most Performed Country Work ( won against Troy Cassar-Daley, Sara Storer, Paul Kelly & Lee Kernaghan),  the CMAA Industry Achiever Award for Independent Entertainer of the Year for three consecutive years and 11 Australian Independent Country Music Awards - the most of any artist to date.
