Carothers takes his Honky Tonk nationwide

-A A +A

Musician> Local talent played two seasons of Gordon’s Summer Concert Series

By Gina Velasquez

For the most part, it is every country music artist’s dream to perform the Grand Ole Opry. For one Los Alamos native, that dream is inching toward reality.
James Carothers moved his family to Nashville, Tennessee, on Jan. 5 after signing a deal with a booking agent — Third Coast Talent.
The booking agency handles clients from the U.S., Europe, Canada and Australia. Carothers said his latest album, Honky Tonk Land is doing better on the UK charts right now than in the U.S.
A performer on the Gordon’s Summer Concert Series for two seasons, Carothers is very well known around town. He spent most of his life in Los Alamos and is a 2000 graduate of Los Alamos High School. “Los Alamos, for its size, is one of the best venues in the world because of the Gordon’s concerts,” Carothers said.
He was the singer in the Renegade Mountain Band, but has since gone solo. He said he still remains close to his former band members. “Everyone has been real supportive,” he said. “They are a great group of guys.”
The band performed at the 2014 Fourth of July celebration in White Rock.
Carothers credits his influences as Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. His sound is that of traditional country and some outlaw country, Carothers said.
