Artist of the Week: Jason Michael Carroll

11133775_433007573541034_4498262180183283333_nBorn of Texas but native to North Carolina, Jason Michael Carroll is a sound of true country music. A style and sound all of his own, Jason has a fan base “Honky Tonk Friends” that travel coast to coast to watch Jason perform. Having attended seven shows of Jason’s and getting to know some of his HTF’s I’ve seen first hand how engergetic the atmosphere is at his shows. Having seen more than 50 artist live I haven’t found a better live performer to date.

Carroll, who is true to himself and to his fans. His authenticity is what sets him apart from those that have been molded by Nashville and labels over the years and lost their reason and their passion for doing what they love. “I was hanging out with Brooks & Dunn on the road, and Ronnie Dunn said, ‘Jason, don’t let anything change you. Be who you are. That’s what got you here.’ It’s great advice.”

 

In concert, on an album, or at the grocery store you see what you get through his passionate lyrics, to his eagerness to get to know his fans and know them as family. Following Jason Michael Carroll on social media is something all fans should do when you finish this article. He shares his love for his family, his love for God and always has something positive to say that’s a word of encouragement.

Jason is now an independent artist and loves it. He loves writing his own music as he as since he has been in the music industry. Carroll also received the honor of RIAA Gold Mastertone certification of “Livin’ Our Love Song,” recognizing sales of 500,000 ringtones and ring backs.

In 2015 Jason released his latest and most raw album yet titled “What Color Is Your Sky”. This album is jam packed with singles like “God Only Knows” and “Close Enough”, and my personal favorite “What Color Is Your Sky”. The album debuted on Top Country Albums chart at No. 37.
