McHone Signs With Loose Records in UK, Will Play AmericanaFest UK as part of UK tour in 2019
“Carousel sees Carson McHone swinging out of her corner of the Texas honky-tonks with the most exciting country record since Margo Price's Midwest Farmer’s Daughter.” -The Line of Best Fit
November 29, 2018 - Carson McHone has released the video for “Sad,” a standout from her latest album Carousel. Clad in sad clown make-up, McHone and her dance partner two-step around an empty bar (Austin, TX’s White Horse Tavern), giving a striking visual to the song. It's at times absurd, tender and even hilarious. McHone will release Carousel in the UK via Loose Records, UK label home of Courtney Marie Andrews, Andrew Combs, The Handsome Family and others, on January 25th. She’ll perform at AmericanaFest UK In London on January 29th, and then head out on a UK tour.
Released in the U.S. in October, Carousel has been met with a wide swath of praise from BrooklynVegan, Rolling Stone Country, American Songwriter, Wide Open Country, Ladygunn, The Boot, KUTX, The Bluegrass Situation and more.

Carousel is a latter-day record unconcerned with flying the flag of old-school country, inspired by diverse sources like Dylan, the Velvet Underground, and American novelist Thomas Wolfe. It wears its eclecticism proudly, with McHone singing each song in a voice that is worldly-wise and woozily gorgeous.
The album was recorded in Nashville and produced by Mike McCarthy, the award-winning producer behind albums for Spoon, Patty Griffin, and Heartless Bastards. McCarthy is well versed in country music but his work is definitely not defined by the genre, which made him the perfect candidate for Carson’s new record.
