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

ABOUT PORTER UNION:

Porter Union, led by husband and wife, Cole Michael Porter and Kendra Porter, is the result of the two old souls spending the better part of the last decade traveling the country together to play their music everywhere from the dive bars and honky tonks to festivals and theaters. When you hear the story of Cole and Kendra meeting in a hometown bar, falling in love while writing and playing together, it sounds like fairy tale built by corporate music row. Luckily, that’s where the comparison stops - you won’t find overproduced, cliche filled songs here. Their honest approach to songwriting combines raw emotional themes with a traditional country sound to bring the listener into the story. It’s no surprise they’ve shared a stage with a variety of notable artists including many of their own heroes.

Porter Union was recently selected by Travis Tritt as a contestant on REAL COUNTRY on USA Network.
