    Jeff Carson was one of the new country singers who was able to
    parlay the mass success of country music in the early '90s to a
    massive hit with his eponymous first album.

    Carson was born Dec. 16, 1964, in Tulsa, Okla., but raised in the
    small Arkansas town of Gravette. As a child, he sang in church
    and played harmonica and guitar. While he was in high school,
    he and his friends formed a band to play their school's talent
    show, performing the Eagles' "Seven Bridges Road." After they
    won second place, Carson was convinced to pursue a musical
    career. Following his high-school graduation, he entered a talent
    contest at an entertainment complex called Ozark Mountain Music
    in Rogers, Ark. Although he didn't come in first, the winner asked
    Carson to play in his house band. For the next four years, he
    played with the outfit, until they finally disbanded.

    Carson moved to Branson, Mo, where he played bass in local
    bands and started writing his own songs. In Branson, he met
    and married his wife, Kim Cooper, who encouraged him to
    move to Nashville. Kim had a friend who played at the Opryland
    Hotel and his group Texana needed a bassist -- hence, Carson
    moved to Music City in 1989. After some persuasion, he
    convinced the hotel to book him as a solo act. Around the same
    time, he signed a songwriting deal with Little Big Town Music
    and began singing on demo tapes for a variety of companies.
    Eventually, publisher-producer Chuck Howard heard Carson's
    original material and signed a publishing and development
    deal with him.

    By 1994, Carson had signed with Curb Records. His self-titled
    debut album was released in early 1995; the first single, "Yeah
    Buddy," went nowhere, but the second single, "Not on Your Love,"
    rocketed to No. 1. It was followed by the Top 10 hits "The Car"
    and "Holdin' On to Somethin'." Future singles were unsuccessful
    until "Real Life (I Never Was the Same Again)" revived his
    career, peaking at No. 14 in 2001. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
