Tim Carroll, a product of rural Indiana, began as the rhythm guitarist for the punk band The Gizmos in the late 70s. He later displayed his bare-bones rock ethic with The Blue Chieftains during the 80s.
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, Bobby 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 Americana chanteuse and Sirius Radio host Elizabeth Cook. He's toured in Japan, Great Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, and South Korea.
