Growing Up Is Getting Old


Jason Michael Carroll’s second album finds him not making too many changes from the first—this is up-the-middle contemporary country with just enough of an edge, courtesy of veteran rock producer Don Gehman and Jason’s own meaty baritone. Growing Up hits all the bases agreeably: “Barn Burner” is an above-average party-in-the-country tune, “Let Me Go” is a heartbreak song with a lyrical twist and “Where I’m From” combines two country standbys in the same song (country-boy-meets-city-boy-on-a-plane, with a family tragedy thrown in toward the end). Jason shines when things get serious in the album’s home stretch on more emotional numbers like “We Threw It All Away” and “Hurry Home.”
