Nashville, TN - October 29, 2009...One of country music's brightest new stars, Jason Michael Carroll will bring his high energy concert to  Nashville's Exit/In onThursday, December 10.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and Carroll takes the stage at 9:00 pm.  Tickets are priced at $15.00 and go on sale beginning Friday, October 30.  To purchase tickets online,  visit or  Tickets will also be available at the door on night of show.  
In 2007 Carroll's debut album, Waitin' in the Country, shot straight to #1 on Billboard's top country albums chart and produced two Top 5 singles - "Alyssa Lies" and "Livin' Our Love Song."  Country music fans and music peers alike sat up and took notice of the singer's raw talent and uniquely gifted songwriting skills, which also captured the attention of major media such as Entertainment Weekly, Los Angeles Times, Reader's Digest, USA Today and Billboard Magazine, who named him "Top New Country Artist of 2007."

With the release of his second album, Growing Up Is Getting Old, Carroll has continued to make his mark in country music.  The album's lead single, "Where I'm From," became another  Top 10 hit for the young singer-songwriter, and his current single "Hurry Home" is rapidly approaching Top 20 and climbing. The latter tells a heart-wrenching story about a father anxiously awaiting the return of his runaway daughter with unconditional love and the accompanying music video very poignantly portrays that message. Each year, almost 3 million kids run away from home and in order to  raise more awareness to this ongoing national crisis, Carroll has teamed up with National Runaway Switchboard,  an organization  dedicated to keeping America's runaway youth safe and off the streets via educational programs. He has included the NRS crisis hotline at the end of the video (1-800-RUNAWAY) and  has recently become a spokesperson for the group, as well.

Originally from Houston, Texas, but raised in North Carolina, Carroll joined a band as a teen-ager and rapidly made a name for himself playing small cinder-block honky-tonks in the Raleigh-Durham area. He was an unlikely candidate for the clubs, as he was not allowed to listen to secular music growing up, but through friends and later at a job in a motor shop, Carroll immersed himself in country music and began paying his dues. He soon met famed producer, Don Gehman (Hootie and the Blowfish,John Mellencamp), who would prove to be instrumental in getting Nashville's attention.

Carroll has accomplished a great deal over the past two years. He's had  two successful albums, a string of radio hits and received widespread media attention.  He has also toured with some of country music's biggest stars, including Brooks & Dunn, Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride and Trace Adkins, to name a few. With that kind of exposure, Carroll has perfected his stage show, winning over a legion of fans all across the country.

"I try to make every show count, whether we're opening or headlining," says Carroll. "My band and I try to do everything we can to make each and every concert the best show ever and to live up to people's expectations. That's really important to me because I want to be doing this for a long, long time. I'm a lucky guy who's just living my dream, one city at a time."
