  7. Live Music: Jason Michael Carroll

    December 6, 2019, 9:00 PM @ RC McGraws Bar & Grill

    The accomplishments are impressive enough for any new artist - a chart-topping debut album nearing a half-million in sales, three hit singles from that album (all of which he wrote or co-wrote), a Gold ringtone certification, and opening spots on some of country's hottest tours. The key to Jason Michael Carroll's success is evident in every note he sings - live or in the studio - and it lies in his authenticity. Whether it's the empathy brought to bear on the tragedy of "Alyssa Lies," the pure passion of "Livin' Our Love Song" or the youthful exuberance of "I Can Sleep When I'm Dead," Carroll knows how to connect with fans, and together with hard work, undeniable talent, and good looks, that connection has launched one of Country's most impressive young careers.
