Mike McCarroll is a country music singer, songwriter, and recording artist
based near Atlanta, Georgia. His new album "At The Crossroads" reflects his
analogy of music being a roadway with distinct intersections of genres.
"There are intersecting points where one genre is almost indistinguishable
from another" he says. "For example, rock is often mixed with country to the
degree you have to wonder is it rock or is it country? As a songwriter, I
try to write in those intersections. Different people like different things.
I hope my music provides a little something for everybody".
His music has been described as authentic, connected to current times, and
very soulful. Mike''s major influences include Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt,
Steve Earle, Alan Jackson, Chris Knight, John Mellencamp, Ray Scott,
Montgomery Gentry and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Mike''s band Greyheart is comprised of a superb group of professional
musicians with several decades of combined experience both live and in the
The new album also features several top-notch session artists that include:
