– Jason Michael Carroll's debut CD "Waitin' in the Country" hit the 200,000 mark in sales since its release in February. Carroll has benefited from hit singles "Alyssa Lies" and the new "Livin' Our Love Song." Carroll has the best-selling debut country male of the past year.

Agreeing to an airplane PA performance of "Happy Birthday" for Eula, Carroll was humorously introduced as country band Jason, Michael & Carol, before launching into "Happy Birthday."
