The LOMO Club is proud to present James Carothers, one of Nashville's finest up and coming traditional country singers. Mixing together Tennessee twang, southern storytelling, and a big, booming baritone, Carothers makes throwback country music for modern times. It's an old-school sound that ignores the trends of contemporary radio. You won't find any bro-country songs here. No Auto Tuned vocals, either. Instead, Carothers dishes up a reminder of country music's golden years — a time filled with fiddle solos, analog production, and slyly simple songs about heartaches and hangovers. His first full-length album, Relapse, released May 5th, 2017, offers plenty of all three. If Relapse bears similarities to classic releases by George Jones, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, it's because 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, playing acoustic duo sets throughout the week with loyal sideman Jerry Lee Combs on bass and a weekly Saturday night band show on The George Jones Rooftop. George Jones' own widow, Nancy, personally hired Carothers for the gig, giving him the opportunity to do something he’s thankful for and that so many aspiring artists moving to Nashville only dream of doing – make a living playing music. James has been nominated for a 2018 Ameripolitan Outlaw Country Award, along with Cody Jinks, Whitey Morgan, and other talented artists keeping real country music alive. The music video for his hit song "Back to Hank" has been viewed almost 4 Million times on Facebook. Watch, listen, & learn more about James at: www.JamesCarothers.com
