In the style of the legends of genuine Country music, James Carothers delivers stirring and hard-hitting songs of real life on his latest album, HONKY TONK LAND. With a gutbucket baritone that brings to mind such singers as Waylon Jennings and Jamey Johnson, Carothers takes us to a time when Country songs of life’s triumphs and struggles filled the airwaves and provided the soundtrack of our lives. A native Southerner who paid his dues performing in the honky tonks and casinos of the Southwest, James is now making a name for himself in Nashville, where he has settled with his young family after years of living in New Mexico. Recognized by some of the music industry’s top media pundits as a star in the making, he also plays lead guitar ala Vince Gill in addition to singing. An accomplished songwriter influenced by the likes of Billy Joe Shaver and Hank Williams, Carothers’ smoky morning-after voice leaves audiences clamoring for more.
