Artist Bio: My name is Steve Carter Jr. I am the son of a Southern Baptist Deacon. I have been surrounded by Christian music all of my life. My mother always sang in the choir. My father and mother had thirteen children. Four died at an early age. Four boys and five girls lived to reach adult hood. I am the thirteenth child and was born September 13, 1953, which was two days before my father's birthday. I got married at age twenty-one and have been happily married for thirty-five years to Mrs. Liza B. Smith Carter. We have one son Charles L. Carter who shares my love for music.
