Jason Michael Carroll Biography:
Jason Michael Carroll was born on June 13, 1978 in Houston, TX, where he grew up in a religious household. His father, a Christian minister didn't allow any secular music played in the home. Jason Michael was able to hear pop, rock and country music in friend's parents' cars, but he really felt moved toward country music, when he worked in a motor shop.
He started singing in a band as the lead singer for a group called "Chasin' Country," but they weren't as serious about music as he was, and when he booked them a gig at the popular Longbranch, the band gave him his pink slip, kicking him out of the group.
In 2004, his mother urged him to enter a local FOX affiliate's talent contest, and it was at this contest he was noticed by Rusty Harmon, who is the manager of Hootie and the Blowfish, and also produced Pat Green's Wave on Wave, and many John Cougar Mellencamp albums. This lead him to his deal with Arista Nashville, where he later released his debut album, Waitin' in the Country. The album debuted at No. 1 and he's had two Top 5 singles, with "Alyssa Lies," and "Livin' Our Love Song."
