Country music star Carlos Washington is the original “Steel Horse” cowboy. With true and authentic western roots, his rancher lifestyle has taken him from the oil fields of South Texas to rodeo rings nationwide where he rides bulls and ropes cattle. On the occasions when his spurs come off you can find him on stage indulging his ultimate passion – singing country music. But whatever he does, like any true cowboy, Carlos’ boots always stay on.
Carlos is known for his pioneering country-rock sound take a listen here! and larger than life stage persona. He has opened for country legends including Willie Nelson and Faith Hill and was honored with the title of “Best Country Western Frontman.” And let’s face it… it’s not often you find a black cowboy, let alone a black cowboy changing the face of country music!
When he’s not making music with his Steel Horse band, Carlos can be found on his ranch in Colorado raising registered Angus cattle with his favorite cowgirl, his wife Merinda.
