Tim Carroll  
Edit Review Tim Carroll  Americana 
Tim Carroll, a product of rural Indiana, releases his eighth record, All Kinds Of Pain, in July 2009. As rhythm guitarist in the late-70s Bloomington, Indiana punk band, The Gizmos (Gulcher), Tim displayed his bare-bones rock ethic, then polished it in the 80s with The Blue Chieftains, his New York City bar band (Diesel Only Records). A Nashville transplant since 1993, Tim has had songs recorded by John Prine, Asleep At The Wheel, BR-549, Robbie Fulks, Kasey Chambers, Elizabeth Cook, Bare Jr., Sunny Sweeney, Sonny Burgess and many others. In 1995, he made the cover of Billboard magazine in an article about Nashville's burgeoning alt-country music scene. In 1996, Tim was nominated for a Nashville Music Award in the category of "Best Unsigned Artist." In 1997, he signed a deal with Sire Records and began working with producer Andy Paley. In 1999, Carroll had two of his Sire recordings on major motion picture soundtracks. Election featured the song "Find A Way To Win," and Drop Dead Gorgeous includes a song co-written with the late Duane Jarvis, "A Girl That's Hip." Since 2000, Tim has appeared on The Grand Ole Opry literally hundreds of times as sideman to his wife, Americana chanteuse and Sirius Radio host Elizabeth Cook. He's toured in Japan, Great Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, and South Korea.
