Country Newcomer James Carothers Signs With Third Coast Talent Nashville, TN (January 19, 2015) - Country newcomer JAMES CAROTHERS has signed an exclusive worldwide booking agreement with Nashville-based THIRD COAST TALENT. The deal comes just prior to Carothers' performance from the DRX Artist Showcase stage at 3rd and Lindsley, tomorrow at 6 p.m. CT. Hosted by beloved singer/songwriter and SiriusXM "Prime Country" personality Deborah Allen, the event will stream live HERE; Facebook fans can learn more at FB Events.

Hailed for his "gut-bucket baritone," compelling songwriting and commanding stage presence, Carothers honed his chops on the Southwest touring circuit prior to his recent move to Nashville. "It was important to me to get back to my roots," observes the native Tennessean. "And this is still where the rubber meets the road on the business end of things."
The entertainer is easily winning over even the most-jaded of the City's movers and shakers, including MusicRow magazine's Robert K. Oermann, who recently reviewed "I Must Be Alive." Oermann observes: "This moaning ode to a lost love has a super deep resonance and burning passion. As a song, it's quite well crafted, with admirably dynamic melodic range as well as sturdy lyrics." The single continues to gain support with radio programmers and is "On Deck" - soon to be charting on MusicRow.
