Award winning Country music star Jeff Carson like many artists is looking for a way to keep the music going in this era of lockdowns and crowd restrictions.
He took a step back in time and chose to re-release his 2003 single “God Save the World”. A song of hope, “God Save the World” is an appropriate choice in these uncertain times.
Carson spoke on the song and his decision to release it saying, “I was excited about the opportunity of recording this song. I have always loved ballads with meaningful lyrics, and this song, I believe, expresses the feelings of so many people in these trying times we’re all living in.” He added, “without a doubt this song is more relatable to today’s society than when I cut it years ago. This year has been bad and I think people will appreciate its message. It just felt like the right time to re-record it.”
Carson has recorded the demos for songs that later became hits for Tracy Byrd, Tracy Lawrence, Reba McEntire, Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw. Those demos also led to Carson getting a recording contract of his own, hit songs, and an Academy of Country Music Award.
More than just a Country singer, Carson is also a police officer in Franklin, Tennessee. He joined the force in 2007.
While the Covid-19 has put the music on hold for, Jeff Carson has no plans of abandoning either of his careers as a musician or a police officer.
“God Save the World” is available on all digital and streaming services.
