Single Spotlight: Will Carter – I Don’t Know Why

Our spotlight shines on Will Carter for the first time!  After debuting at #95 in its first week, “I Don’t Know Why” has moved all the way up to #62 on the Texas Regional Radio Report in just a few short weeks.    Written by Carter and Jude Dyllan, the track was produced at Red Dirt Studio.

“It’s about hanging out with a chick you are really into and not wanting to call it an early night” the Frydek, Texas native told us.    We like the fun message of the song here at Texas Music Pickers, and the catchy chorus.  The lyrics roll smoothly along the music, and Carter offers a great range of vocals!



I don’t know why we gotta say goodbye

Can’t we just wait until the sunrise

Nobody’s waiting on me you got nowhere to be and we’re shutting down early

I don’t know why


“I Don’t Know Why” is the lead single, off of his upcoming album; which is currently in the mixing and mastering stage!  Opening for acts like Cody Johnson, Corey Smith, and Curtis Grimes, Carter is cutting out a name for himself in the Houston music scene and later this month, he’ll playing the First Annual Beer & Burger Throw down in the Woodlands Texas with Josh Ward and Jason Cassidy at Town Green Park!  On top of playing some great shows, Carter is headed out on a 2 week radio tour from Laredo to Abilene, at the end of April, looking to expand his presence even further!
