Fast-rising Country artist Rafe Carlson (pronounced RAYF) is striking a chord with fans from the Midwest to Nashville and everywhere in between with his high-octane, energetic live shows, guitar driven tracks, and unapologetic, Skynyrd-esque attitude. Right at the intersection of modern Country and Southern Rock, Rafe's lyrics nod to his upbringing in the frigid Northwoods of Minnesota. The 25-year-old multi-instrumentalist grew up hunting, fishing, and working outdoors in one of  the continental U.S.'s harshest climates. His bloodline is comprised of carpenters, loggers, Vikings, home-builders, and WW2 soldiers. Naturally, his country sound is a little rougher-around-the-edges, with gritty electric guitar parts played by cousins Steven and David Carlson.

The Duluth native has garnered over 45,000,000 views on social media, worked with Grammy winning producers and prolific hit songwriters in Nashville, and appeared at festivals and events all over the country. The success of his shows in the Midwest led to Rafe joining bills with superstar acts like Jon Pardi, Jake Owen, Trace Adkins, Chris Janson, and dozens more. His most recent release out of Nashville, 'Never Look Back' has seen radio play across the Upper Midwest, on country stations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

Rafe's recently announced 'Great Lakes Country' Tour sees him joining forces with Brantley Gilbert, Dustin Lynch, Justin Moore, and several of the hottest names in country music.
