Country newcomer James Carothers has signed an exclusive worldwide booking agreement with Nashville-based Third Coast Talent. His current CD, Honky Tonk Land, features seven original songs. Carothers will showcase several of those tunes during the DRX Showcase stage at 3rd & Lindsley tomorrow evening (Jan. 20) beginning at 6 p.m. CT.
“It was important to me to get back to my roots,” says the Tennessee native about his recent move to Nashville. “And this is still where the rubber meets the road on the business end of things.”
MusicRow magazine’s Robert K. Oermann, who recently reviewed Carothers’ single “I Must Be Alive,” saying, “This moaning ode to a lost love has a super deep resonance and burning passion. As a song, it’s quite well crafted, with admirably dynamic melodic range as well as sturdy lyrics.”
