Nashville honky-tonk crooner James Carothers is known best for his stone-country originals and spot-on impressions of several of country music’s greatest icons. In 2015, James left a technician job at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and returned to his native state of Tennessee to pursue a country music career at the unlikely ripe-old-age of 33. George Jones’ own widow, Nancy, personally hired James for his first steady gig at the George Jones Museum in Nashville, allowing him to make a living playing music and to hone his hobby-turned-profession in an accelerated fashion. James released a new album called Songs and Stories on Nov. 22, 2019. Previous releases include Still Country, Still King: A Tribute to George Jones (2018), his first full-length original album Relapse (2017), and an EP Honky Tonk Land (2014).
Is it premature to see Hall of Fame material in a guy who’s just releasing his first album? Not if that guy is Tony Jackson. To put it plainly, Jackson is the most talked singer in Nashville today and one of the most gifted singers ever to grace country music. Rolling Stone magazine cited Tony Jackson’s latest single, “County Road,” naming it among the 10 Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Now stating — “fiddle, harmonica, pedal steel guitar fill this less-known James Taylor salute to the rolling ribbons of backwoods blacktop, but it’s Tony Jackson’s voice – which could easily pass for Taylor’s classic croon—that packs the biggest punch.” Since his highly praised May 2017 debut album release, Tony Jackson, the affable singer has already been invited to perform on the Grand Ole Opry (multiple times) and CMA Fest, and has appeared on several important national TV shows.
Allie Colleen is an Americana folk country artist from Owasso, Oklahoma, currently residing Nashville. Allie is a graduate from Belmont University with a degree in songwriting and music Business. She has been performing since she was 14 years of age and now since graduating in 2018 she has been on the road sharing her talent with audiences of all different kinds. Her first single debuted July 10, 2019, on her grandmother Colleen’s birthday. She is the daughter of Garth Brooks.
Rodney Carrington is a multi-talented comedian, actor, singer and writer playing sold-out shows around the world as one of the top 10 highest-grossing touring comedians for the past two decades. A platinum-recording artist, Rodney’s recorded eight major record label comedy albums, followed by three albums on his own record label, Laughter’s Good Records. His last album “Here Comes the Truth” (released 2017) climbed to #3 on the comedy charts, accruing tens of millions of streams on Spotify and even spawned a Netflix special.
