Country music is known for having crossover music stars and singer/songwriter Jamie Carol is no exception. The former opera singer-turned country-singer/songwriter was born and raised in Southern California, but spend time with family in Missouri and Arkansas.
Today, Jamie unveils his new single, “Lemonade,” via CMG Records. On “Lemonade,” Jamie Carol showcases his huge voice. The single was produced by Scott Leader and James Crowley.
“Lemonade” is a fun take on a breakup drinking song — imagine this, Jamie Carol‘s girlfriend breaks up with him over a “scribbled note by the door” and he sings, “I need to wash her away” and “the only drink that I can stand is the unfermented kind.”
Jamie‘s career kind of began in an unusual way. He went from being an opera singer to a country singer/songwriter in no time. While he was singing in multiple languages on the opera stage, his heart remained in the country with his family roots in Missouri and Arkansas.
During his opera career, Jamie was a finalist in The Met’s international vocal competition, and he sang on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera! He also sang for the United Nations 50th Anniversary Celebration and the for the U.S. President.
Next up, Jamie plans to focus on speaking his truth and even creating his own music.
Then he sings, “Pour me a tall, sweet, sour, ice-cold glass of lemonade.”
