When Jason Michael Carroll first hit the scene, he took advantage of hitting every party he could with his band. He tells The Mobile Press-Register, "When we first released the first record, the band and I, we really kind of lived up [to] 'I Can Sleep When I'm Dead.' It got to the point where, if there was a party we were invited to, we wouldn't turn down an invitation. If that meant we got two hours' sleep before the next morning and we had interviews and things like that to do, then, so be it."
But, all the late nights finally caught up to them and Jason Michael decided that things had to change. He explains, "By the time we were getting ready to do the second record, I noticed that we still got invited to parties, we'd still go to parties, but we wouldn't party as hard." Carroll continues, "We still party, but that growing up, that dang responsibility kicks in. That's when growing up truly is getting old, because you'd love to hang out, you'd love to still do it, but you have to be responsible."
Jason Michael also shares that he feels the tides changing in his career. He says, "It's really starting to catch on. It feels like we're right there on that edge, about to really bust loose. It's exciting." The biggest difference is the one he sees during his live shows. Carroll explains, "Everywhere we seem to be playing, we're seeing more and more folks coming out. Not just that, but the folks that are there, we're seeing more and more folks singing along to our songs. They'll scream for songs that I've never eve released on a record yet... It's really cool that people are responding that well and that way to our music."
