Meet the Hosts of The Blue Collar Proud Show
When not recording the show, you’ll probably find Carter on his patio, enjoying a cigar while punching out some work on his laptop. Married for 15 years to the same woman (a saint, if for no other reason than that), they live in Nashville with their 9 year-old son. Together with Taylor Hill, he owns Spark Marketer, an online marketing company that helps local blue-collar businesses grow.
You can almost bet that when you meet Taylor, you’ll also meet his dogs. They are just part of the package, and what a deal! Taylor and his wife of 14 years live in Nashville, where he and Carter own and manage Spark Marketer, a specialty online marketing agency helping over 100 local blue-collar service businesses grow big.
