Country Weekly asked new artist Christian Simmons to catch up with red-hot Jason Michael Carroll and pose some questions to him about his life and career. Here’s more from that one-on-one, conducted at the Jamboree in the Hills festival in Ohio.
CS: What is your worst habit?
JMC: Habit or addiction? I’m addicted to video games. I spend way too much time playing those.
CS: On a scale of 1 to 10, how important is it for you to be in love?
JMC: You know, for me, I think it’s about a 6. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m in a relationship and I’m in love and I’m happy to be where I’m at, but I think with everybody else, it’s different. There are some people who go their whole lives and they’re just content to be by themselves and they enjoy life and live it up to the fullest on their own. I couldn’t do that, but, you know, that’s me.
CS: Have you ever been fired from a job?
JMC: Absolutely—for my music. For getting a job, and then having to say, ‘You know, I’m going to have to take off a lot to go play some gigs out of state, out of town.’ So, yeah, I’ve been fired from a couple.
CS: What do you want more than anything right now—a long-lasting career, perhaps?
JMC: Yes, that’d be a good one. I’d love to have a career like George Strait, Garth Brooks and Keith [Urban].
CS: Finish this sentence: “If I ruled the world . . . “
JMC: People would be in trouble. I mean, not that I’d go flattening anybody. I’m just not that organized.
