Product Description

Jason Michael Carroll is a man who inspires believers from multi Platinum pop songstress, Jewel, to longtime John Mellencamp producer Don Gehman, and host of Nashville's top songwriters. And for this rich-voiced, 28 year old father of four, his Gehman-produced debut album showcases the heart, energy, and versatility that define Jason Michael and his music. His first single at radio was the most added new song for three weeks straight. Written by Carroll, 'Alyssa Lies' paints a searing portrait of the plight of an abuses schoolmate. At a time when the genre's at a crossroad, it's good to know there's a new voice on the rise that's comfortable wherever the music leads. For Jason Michael Carroll, though, it's not a matter of comfort' it's a matter of who he is at the very center of his being. One listen and you'll know.

Jason Michael Carroll's debut, already distinguished by the single "Alyssa Lies," an affecting ballad about child abuse, is a take-no-chances, radio-ready smorgasbord aimed mostly at the testosterone-fueled, truck-revvin' set. Carroll, a 28-year-old father of four and the son of a North Carolina fundamentalist preacher, hits those Piedmont consonants hard, and looks like a cross between a contemporary Christian singer and a devotee of Trace Adkins, whose speaker-rattling baritone is an obvious inspiration. With producer Don Gehman (John Mellencamp) mixing Carroll's sensitive originals with hearty commercial songs from proven Nashville hitmeisters (Craig Wiseman, Casey Beathard, Jeffrey Steele), it's hard to get a good fix on Carroll's persona, and he lives and dies by the material. One schizophrenic moment: "No Good in Goodbye," his duet with Nashville convert Jewel, who co-wrote the song with Carroll and Shaye Smith. The fading pop icon has no idea how to phrase a song like this, and the singers' interaction never sounds believable. To quote a line from another tune here, "Something like this just don't exist/Between a backwoods boy and a fairytale princess." Carroll's ability to balance the realism of "Alyssa Lies" with such obviously calculated fare (check out the Toby Keith-ish "Honky Tonk Friends") may ultimately set his fate. --Alanna Nash
