Mike McCarroll Band – Classic Southern Country
Mike McCarroll Band
Mike McCarroll is an American country music singer, songwriter, and recording artist who records both in Nashville, Tennessee and Atlanta, Georgia. His music blends traditional country, southern rock and Americana to create his own unique outlaw country style. He is a 2012 GA Music Award nominee for Country Male Artist of the Year. In 2011, he was nominated for three awards by Georgia-Country.com in the categories of Best Country Male, Best Country Band, and Best Americana Band. Mike and his band are 2009 winners of the Gorilla Productions Battle of the Bands, a multi-genre contest.
His debut album “At The Crossroads” was released in 2007 to positive reviews and garnered attention from record labels in Nashville. Mike followed up in 2010 with the release of his second album “Honky Tonk Dreams” which received strong reviews and led to a showcase for several Nashville record labels. His song “Cash Crop” went to #2 in Atlanta on the Reverbnation independent country charts in the summer of 2011 and is still a favorite on several radio stations all over north Alabama and Georgia. Another song, “If The Devil Brought You Roses” from the same CD, has received airplay on over 400 radio stations across the U.S.
MM’s first memories of music revolve around his Mom and aunt dancing him around the kitchen countertop to Elvis singles “All Shook Up” and “Hound Dog”. That was a fine place to start for the young McCarroll as he progressed into the 60’s and 70’s listening to rock music and then got into southern rock in late 70’s and country music by the mid 80’s.
Mike was born and raised in Harriman, Tennessee near Knoxville and Oak Ridge. When he went into the Air Force at eighteen during the Vietnam Era, a friend showed him a few chords on the guitar and a new and different interest began with music. Mike says the first song he learned was “Heart of Gold” by Neil Young. What got him serious about writing, recording, and performing was the emergence of alternative country music. When he discovered pioneers like Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, and Chris Knight, the excitement and feelings that were engaged with southern rock started all over and he was inspired once again.
