Nashville, TN (January 19, 2015) - Country newcomer JAMES CAROTHERS
has signed an exclusive worldwide booking agreement with
Nashville-based THIRD COAST TALENT. The deal comes just prior to
Carothers' performance from the DRX Artist Showcase stage at 3rd and Lindsley, tomorrow at 6 p.m. CT. Hosted by beloved singer/songwriter and SiriusXM "Prime Country" personality Deborah Allen, the event will stream live HERE; Facebook fans can learn more at FB Events.
his "gut-bucket baritone," compelling songwriting and commanding stage
presence, Carothers honed his chops on the Southwest touring circuit
prior to his recent move to Nashville. "It was important to me to get
back to my roots," observes the native Tennessean. "And this is still
where the rubber meets the road on the business end of things."
The entertainer is easily winning over even the most-jaded of the City's movers and shakers, including MusicRow magazine's Robert K. Oermann, who recently reviewed "I Must Be Alive."
Oermann observes: "This moaning ode to a lost love has a super deep
resonance and burning passion. As a song, it's quite well crafted, with
admirably dynamic melodic range as well as sturdy lyrics." The single
continues to gain support with radio programmers and is "On Deck" - soon
to be charting on MusicRow.
Carothers, who has been compared to Waylon Jennings and Jamey Johnson, produced his current CD, HONKY TONK LAND (Renegade
Mountain Records). An eight-track tour-de-force of true Country music,
the disc features seven Carothers' originals, and takes the listener
back to a time when songs of life's triumphs and struggles filled the
Country airwaves.The album is available for purchase now at iTunes, Amazon, Amazon UK and GooglePlay.
A native of McNairy County, Tennessee, James spent his boyhood leading the a cappella
choir at the local Church of Christ before the family moved out west.
After 20 years as a resident of New Mexico, Carothers has returned to
his Southern roots, bringing his young family to Nashville this year.
Considered a star in-the-making by some of the music industry's top
pundits, he comes by his Country style honestly, counting Waylon,
Willie, Merle and Johnny Cash as major overall influences, while naming
Keith Whitley and George Jones as inspirations for his distinctive
phrasing and singing. As a writer, he admires the talents of Billy Joe
Shaver and Hank Williams. An adept lead guitar player ala Vince Gill, James is an engaging entertainer who leaves his audiences clamoring for more after every show.
