Jason Michael Carroll goes by the "Numbers"
Sunday, March 27, 2011
– Jason Michael Carroll got his start singing in public while working as a server at the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store location in Henderson, N.C. Now, Carroll will release "Numbers," his first studio album since 2009, on July 25.
The title track will be the new single out today. "Numbers is a song that got my attention the first time I heard it," said Carroll. "It was written by Patrick Davis and Rodney Clausen, and it's about the way certain numbers, like dates and times, can represent some of life's most significant moments. Moments like your first date, meeting the love of your life and the day your child is born. Those dates and times have real meaning in our lives. I think everyone can identify with that concept."
Numbers will be available on iTunes as of April 5. The CD will be available exclusively at all Cracker Barrel locations July 25, with 12 songs on it, including Alyssa Lies from Carroll's 2007 album "Waitin' in the Country."
1. Meet me in the Barn
3. Can I get an Amen
4. Hell or Hallelujah
5. Last Word
7. Don't know Why
8. Ray of Hope
9. Let Me
10. This is for the Lonely
11. My Favorite
12. Alyssa Lies (from the album Waitin' in the Country, Arista Records, 2007)

There's little of the soul and personal touch that made songs from previous ...
Dear Jason Michael Carroll,
Congratulations on the success you enjoyed with your first album "Waitin' in the Country" as well as the first single Where I'm From off your new album. At this stage in your career, you should probably be thinking about ways to make yourself stand out from the ever-increasing crowd of the next king of country music wannabes. It's not enough to have three names (just ask Earl Thomas Conley or Jason Michael Montgomery. ...
It seems like now is the time for country vocalists with deep, rich voices to be heard, and Jason Michael Carroll will certainly be heard. Versatility and passion are the traits that best serve his sometimes rumbling vocals.
Carroll took a step away from his North Carolina fundamentalist upbringing to make the secular music forbidden at home. That act of rebellion isn't lost in his music as it burns across songs with social implications, like the first single (and hit) off his album, ...
