Country music recording artist and hit-maker Jason Michael Carroll will headline a benefit concert Saturday, Nov. 9 at North Middle School in Winchester.
Proceeds from the show will assist the Christmas Angels Program at the Campora Center, which provides clothing and other necessities for needy children in Franklin County during the holiday season.
Carroll rose to fame after being discovered at a local talent competition in 2004 and later signed to the Arista Nashville label in 2006, releasing his debut album Waitin’ In The Country that year.
The album produced three Top 40 hits including “Alyssa Lies,” “Livin’ Our Love Song,” and “I Can Sleep When I’m Dead” and soared to number one on the US Country charts, selling nearly half a million copies. Both of Carroll’s following albums, Growing Up Is Getting Old and Numbers have charted on the Billboard Top 200.
He has opened for Brooks and Dunn, Trace Adkins, and Alan Jackson, and became part of the 2008 tours of Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride. He was also featured on Good Morning America, thrilled the crowd at the CMA Music Festival, and has played multiple times at the Grand Ole Opry.
Carroll, who hails from Youngsville, N.C., is gearing up to release his first new single since 2011, “Close Enough.” Additionally, he hits the road this summer with more than 75 tour dates on the books for 2013 and will be releasing a live DVD later this year.
Carroll is a consummate songwriter and continues to write and release new material. Carroll remains humble and optimistic about the future, stating, “I don’t take for granted what I’m doing, and I thank God and my fans every day I have the chance to keep doing it.”
