Traditional country artist James Carothers has released his new album Still Country, Still King: A Tribute To George Jones. Earlier this week, James had several “about the song” videos exclusively premiered by Raised Rowdy, Roughstock, Nashville Access and Country Music Tattle Tale ahead of the album’s release. The album is available for download and streaming here.
“We decided to do a George Jones tribute album because we’ve been playing at the George Jones museum for about three and a half years now,” said Carothers. “In the process of all that, we met some tremendous fans, and the biggest fan was Ed Smith and he said, ‘Boys, I want y’all to make a George Jones tribute record.’ We just tried to do our best and pick out ones that people like and ones we like ourselves. Just a great time together and great music.”
Before the album’s release, James released three singles: “Sinners and Saints,” “Someday My Day Will Come,” and “Treat Your Man A Little Bit Better.” Keep up with James on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, and on his website at www.jamescarothers.com.
About James Carothers
Mixing together Tennessee twang and southern storytelling, James Carothers makes throwback country music for modern times. His first full-length album, Relapse, released in May 2017, bears similarities to classic releases by George Jones, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. Carothers wrote most of the songs between daily gigs at The George Jones in Nashville. Since its opening in 2015, he’s performed hundreds of shows at the venue. George Jones’ own widow, Nancy, personally hired Carothers for the gig, giving him the opportunity to make a living playing music. James now plays several shows at venues in downtown Nashville each week when he’s not on the road. In 2018, James was nominated for an Ameripolitan Award in the “Outlaw Male” category. His hit song “Back to Hank” has received over four million views on Facebook and his Spotify and Apple Music artist profiles have been streamed over one million times combined. This September, James released his newest album, Still Country, Still King: A Tribute to George Jones. James will also be making his Grand Ole Opry debut this year.
