I need to tell you about this way cool Nashville residency happening right now in downtown Nashville. As far as I can tell, this will be a once a month residency and last month it featured my friends over at Porter Union.

Mr. James Carothers has been making some major waves around town here with his true traditional Country sound. And I have been told he has an exquisite backing band, which provides a great atmosphere.

Jimbo’s Honky Tonk Revival is a new downtown Nashville residency featuring local Honky Tonk Crooner, James Carothers. Once a month at The George Jones on 2nd Ave, Carothers (with full-band in tow) will be presenting original songs from previously released albums and from his forthcoming 2019 monthly singles projects, as well as a few well-chosen classics & gospel tunes from the greats like Haggard, Jennings, Jackson & of course Jones! Different from typical downtown slots, this is a ticketed concert, so there will be no tip bucket. Watch for opening act TBA.

“We decided to put together a monthly Saturday night show for all our friends and fans that we meet playing the bars here in Nashville,” says Carothers. “We’re looking forward to doing it at The George Jones, the place where we got our start and where we’ve met so many great people. It’ll be more akin to a true music show instead of just taking requests to sell beer and whiskey…but not to worry, you can still get beer and whiskey!” laughs Carothers. “We’ll be playing originals and a handful of good covers. There’ll also be twin fiddles so it’s going to be even more country-er than normal. We hope this will become a time where folks from all over make plans to gather for good community and real country music.”

ABOUT JAMES CAROTHERS:
James has performed over a thousand shows at The George Jones & other venues throughout downtown Nashville since May 2015. George Jones’ own widow, Nancy, personally hired Carothers for the gig, giving him the opportunity to make a living playing music. In addition to supporting his young family and connecting with others musicians and songwriters, performing downtown has helped Carothers build a large fan base of fiercely supportive followers — fans who are drawn through the doors by the booming voice echoing down Broadway or 2nd Avenue and his spot-on impressions of several of country music’s greatest icons. Playing so many shows in a relatively short time-frame in a city where there’s an excess of raw talent forced him to sharpen his stage show quickly and continue to refine the thing he’s always enjoyed most — entertaining and interacting with folks in a way that leaves most people feeling like they’ve made a new friend. Over the past couple of years, James has enjoyed playing several opening slots, festivals, fairs, and private events in locations all across the United States and has even had the chance to travel to Canada, Japan, Scotland and Norway for shows.

“James Carothers sounds like a soundtrack for the grand tour that celebrates classic country’s history of rowdy crooners and sentimental outlaws.”— Will Hodge, Rolling Stone Country

One day I went into the Nashville Palace to type up some stories and have a cheeseburger, and I happened to catch this man’s unique set in the front bar. Now, here you have this man up there belting out the most rare traditional Country Music one could possibly find in the honky tonk of Nashville.

I mean, we have SO MUCH rare and wonderful local talent here that every time I find a new person I just salivate over researching more them, so I can bring them to you. Mr. David Peterson is indeed one of those individuals. Let me tell you this..,.the man played Tarnished Angel by George Jones. NOT the Jones that these kids nowadays are idolizing THE JONES that recorded for Starday Records, and had a flat top haircut.

He dresses the part and entertains like a pro, and has more passion and revrance for real true Country Music than TWENTY of those packaged fools in the mainstream music community.

His latest edition of 1946 will feature Lincoln Hensley on banjo, Josh Gooding on mandolin, and Mike Bub on bass (when his schedule allows). David will play guitar and sing lead, with Josh taking the tenor. They will also use a number of different fiddlers when they go out.

I’ll be keeping an eye out for this man, and his music to feature the album in the best fashion I can in the upcoming months.
