How many 19 year olds can truly say they have been pursuing their career since age 11? That is when Afton Prater picked her first guitar. A year later she wrote her first song and at age 14 ventured to Nashville to record her first EP (Stay with Me). Born only in 1998, the young upcoming country artist, Afton Prater, is one of the few who can truly and honestly say that she’s been chasing her dream since the 6th grade.
Growing up listening to Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley on her grandparent’s record player, as well as listening to her parents’ favorite artist Bruce Springsteen, Afton has had a very diverse but successful set of musical influences. Claiming her music to be a mix between Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift, Afton admires and has been influenced by many of the powerful and awesome artists in country music today. Eric Church, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, and especially the women in country music like Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Kacey Musgraves, Dolly Parton, and Kelsea Ballerini are just some of her biggest influences, both old and new. Afton has studied and implemented their ability to write and perform light, fun hearted songs, as well as “kick ass” songs, and deep, emotional, soul touching songs.
