Growing Up Is Getting Old

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The pensive, sepia-toned snapshot on the cover of Jason Michael Carroll's second album, Growing Up Is Getting Old, shows that the country singer is determined to leave the pretty-boy down-home hunk of his first album behind -- at least in terms of image, if not quite in terms of music.
