Carlisle sees music success in the Delta
Choosing a career path took most of his life, Devin Carlisle admits. But now that he has set his mind on becoming a professional music artist, doors are swinging open for the 21-year-old singer/songwriter, who is following the musical footsteps of his late grandfather, B.C. Carlisle of Tunica, MS.
“Most kids knew they wanted to do basketball, football, acting or politics… I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. I wanted to know what I was passionate about, and I didn’t have that in high school or middle school,” Devin said. “When I left for college and I was on my own, I was singing all the time. I sang in front of strangers basically, and I got support from people. They told me I would be good. It made me confident, and it made me know that this is what I want to do in life.”
