Jason Michael Carroll pulls back the production to reveal a new sensitivity in his single ‘Close Enough.’ The singer has a unique way of taking a phrase and turning, twisting and shaping it to mean several different things within a three-minute song. It’s a talent that’s on display once again during this regret-filled ballad.

While the songwriting is sharp, it’s Carroll’s tone and the arrangement that really set the mood for this track. A simple acoustic plucking over a gently snare drum lets us know how the story will end before he begins.

“I get 700 channels on my TV / I got more things than any man needs / I got friends to call when I wanna get buzzed / But I can’t get you close enough,” he sings to start.

The chorus displays that knack for shaping a phrase to mean something new, just as he did on ‘Alyssa Lies’ and ‘Where I’m From.’ “So many people in the world to love / Crazy how my heart only wants one / And I can’t shake how good it was / Back when we couldn’t get close enough.”

In the past, Carroll could be accused of falling in love with his own deep voice, using it at every chance, often at max volume. That’s not the case on ‘Close Enough.’ A more mature sound comes from this singe. He even reaches up for a falsetto toward the end, that — while not his new signature — is a pleasant surprise. What makes this song a keeper, however, is the sorrow it plants in the heart of each listener. He makes you feel it. And that feeling lasts. - Taste Of Country

Bio

Country music hit-maker Jason Michael Carroll from Youngsville, North Carolina, is gearing up to release his first new single since 2011, “Close Enough.” Additionally, he hits the road this summer with more than 75 tour dates on the books for 2013 and will be releasing a live DVD later this year.

Carroll rose to fame after being discovered at a local talent competition in 2004 and later signed to the Arista Nashville label in 2006, releasing his debut album Waitin’ In The Country that year. The album produced three Top 40 hits including “Alyssa Lies,” “Livin’ Our Love Song,” and “I Can Sleep When I’m Dead” and soared to number one on the US Country charts, selling nearly half a million copies. Both of Carroll’s following albums, Growing Up Is Getting Old and Numbers have charted on the Billboard Top 200.

He has opened for Brooks & Dunn, Trace Adkins, and Alan Jackson, and became part of the 2008 tours of Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride. He was also featured on Good Morning America, thrilled the crowd at the CMA Music Festival, and has played multiple times at the Grand Ole Opry.

Jason Michael Carroll is a consummate songwriter and continues to write and release new material. Carroll remains humble and optimistic about the future, stating, "I don’t take for granted what I'm doing, and I thank God and my fans every day I have the chance to keep doing it."
