Rancho Cucamonga, California (The Hollywood Times) 04/10/2021 – “I’m really proud of being able to see this song re-released.” Jeff Carson told The Hollywood Times during a phone interview.
Country music hitmaker Jeff Carson and MCC/Curb Records take us back in time with the re-release of the 2003 duet with Lisa Brokop titled, “God Save The World.” The nearly 20-year-old inspiring song takes center stage as a single once again, proving its timeless lyrics are just as powerful today as they ever were. “God Save The World” recently earned its well-deserved spot as MC1 Nashville’s top 35 Music Row single. That release drew the attention of Mike Curb to rekindle a new partnership with Carson, re-releasing the original recording with Brokop.
“Songs come and go, but Jeff Carson & Lisa Brokop’s “God Save The World” is here to stay and there is not a better time for it to come back around. These are some power words in this song: GOD SAVE OUR HOMES; GOD SAVE THIS EARTH; LET EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US; SEE WHAT PRAYER IS WORTH.” Let’s keep on praying! Judy Shields, The Hollywood Times

More About Jeff Carson:
Jeff Carson has come full circle with careers that have allowed him to do the two things that he loves – music and police work. While singing demos on songs that turned into hits for Tracy Byrd (“Walkin’ To Jerusalem”), Tracy Lawrence (“I See it Now”), Reba McEntire (“The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter”), and Tim McGraw (“I Wouldn’t Want It Any Other Way”), Faith Hill (“It Matters To Me”).” Singing demos turned into a lucky decision for Carson when he met record producer and publisher Chuck Howard, who cut three or four songs on him that were good enough to pitch to labels. Howard was instrumental in getting him his label deal at Curb Records, and soon a single, “Yeah Buddy,” released to radio. This was his first charting single and was followed up with ‘Not On Your Love,’ which went number one. The following single, ‘The Car,’ became a top-five hit, topping out at number two. Carson had several other singles, including “Real Life (Was Never The Same Again)” from his album “Real Life.” An album release party was planned for “Real Life” on September 11, 2001. That morning terrorists hijacked two planes to attack the Twin Towers in New York City and one that attacked the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. A fourth plane was hijacked from the terrorists and crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The song made it into the Top 20 but it all changed when Carson decided to switch from music to law enforcement.
