Jeff Carson Biography – Jeff Carson Wiki
Jeff Carson was an American country music singer and songwriter, who scored hits with “Not On Your Love,” and “The Car” before becoming a police officer in Franklin, Tennessee. The Tulsa, Oklahoma native had 14 charted singles in his career on the Billboard chart.
Carson was born Jeffrey Lee Herndon on December 16, 1963 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He began to perform after participating at a local competition in Rogers, Arkansas. Carson later moved to Branson, Missouri, where he found work playing bass guitar in local bands, in addition to writing songs.
While in Branson, he met his future wife, and then moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1989. There he found work with a band that played at the Opryland Hotel, and eventually started recording demos for other artists including Tracy Byrd (“Walkin’ To Jerusalem”), Tracy Lawrence (“I See it Now”), Reba McEntire (“The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter”), Tim McGraw (“I Wouldn’t Want It Any Other Way”), Faith Hill (“It Matters To Me”), Mark Wills (“Places I’ve Never Been”), Diamond Rio (“Mirror Mirror”) and other country stars.
After being discovered by record producer Chuck Howard in 1994, Carson signed with Curb Records. His first single, Yeah Buddy, was released on radio in 1995. Next was single Not On Your Love, which went number one, followed by The Car, another top-five hit that resulted in his first Academy of Country Music award for “Video of the Year.” Carson recorded several other singles, including Real Life (Was Never The Same Again), which was another of the 14 charted singles in his career on the Billboard chart.
In 2009, Carson retired from music to become a law enforcement officer with Franklin Police Department in Williamson County, Tennessee.
Carson returned to music in 2019 after signing a singles deal with MC1 Nashville to recut and release a previously recorded song God Save The World, which charted on the Music Row Top 40 chart. More recently, Carson signed with Encore Music Group and was in the studio with Buddy Hyatt recording a specialty album to be released later this year that included duets with Michael Ray, Darryl Worley, Mark Wills, and Craig Morgan.
