1. What made you decide to change your name & what is the story behind picking “Kingston?”
A: Honestly, We just felt that this was a natural evolution for us!! We like to call it Carter Twins 2.0. And as far as the story behind the name.. Zach was driving through a town called Kingston Springs TN and just thought it was a cool place and called me and was like, Hey what about Kingston for our new band name. We loved it and loved how it skewed a little older and just fit perfectly with the new music and image!
