"Carter Sampson's fourth full-length album Wilder Side is a soulful and soft country masterpiece. The Oklahoma City singer-songwriter has a penchant for penning songs that don't need bluster or bombast to tell a powerful story. Focusing on themes of heartbreak and the open road, Wilder Side is the kind of pure country record that has far more in common with classic releases from the likes of Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris than it does with anything one will find on country radio. Fellow Oklahoma artists Ali Harter and John Moreland made appearances on the record lending their distinctive voices, perfectly complementing Sampson's beautifully sorrowful vocals. And that more than anything is what drives this record, Sampson's breathtaking voice. This record is haunting and mesmerizing and simply beautiful." Oklahoma Lefty
