Jimmy Charles

About The Artist

Jimmy Charles is making a name for himself as a country music star in

the making and a philanthropist creating music that makes a difference.

 

Born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Jimmy moved to Music City in 2008 and was quick to become an active and viable member of the singer/songwriter and performing community. He’s since played every famed Nashville honky tonk, traveled across the U.S. sharing stages with Lady A, Montgomery Gentry, Kip Moore, Kacey Musgraves, Travis Tritt, Josh Turner and Merle Haggard, and was invited to play for the NHL Alumni & Hall of Fame Association in Toronto Canada. His career catapulted when American Idol producers recognized his talents and cast him as a contender on the nationally televised reality entertainment show in 2010 (Season 9).

 

Jimmy’s early career accomplishments highlight the success of his debut single release, titled “Whatever It Takes,” which captured the attention of country music radio programmers and achieved Top 40 status on the MusicRow Chart.

 

He penned “Superman” (alongside Goose Gossett and Phil Shulka, who is a cancer survivor) which is a composition dedicated to cancer survivors and delivers a strong message surrounding the importance of early detection. The original became the mantra song for ZERO-The End of Prostate Cancer (as the organization’s “fight cancer” anthem). Now, as national spokesman for the nonprofit, Jimmy has become an integral part of the foundation’s awareness campaign. He travels the country to perform at various ZERO Run/Walks and participates in the associated media campaigns to raise funds for research and treatment, and consciousness surrounding men’s prostate cancer. The “Superman” music video premiered on CMT and climbed to No. 1; the clip also entered broadcast rotation on GAC, Heartland and The Country Network (formerly ZUUS TV).

 

His journey has led him to utilize his platforms to further his purpose in the fight against cancer. As the brainchild and spearhead of the I Am Not Alone 501c3 non-profit organization (founded to spread hope, strength and unity to survivors), Jimmy creates powerful music with the objective to cultivate a “you are not alone” community and support system. His philanthropic passion and commitment in this endeavor led him to earn the “Outstanding Young Tennessean” Award (2017) and “Top Ten Outstanding Young Americans” Award (2019). A NIMA Winner, Jimmy was presented the award for "Male Country Artist Of The Year" and "Song Of The Year”(2020).

 

Jimmy’s most recent country radio release, “Bout Summertime,” charted in the Top 100 on the MusicRow Country Breakout Chart; the corresponding music video is in regular rotation at various nightclub, bar and restaurant locations (including Margaritaville), as well as casinos and retail outlets across the U.S. 

 

In alliance with the National Recovery Month and National Substance Abuse Prevention Month campaigns (in September and October respectively), Jimmy is set to introduce the poignant single “Hard Way To Go,” the title track of his new album, as a personal recognition in support of those who suffer with addiction and their recovery.

 

At the end of the day, Jimmy Charles is a person of  “heart--poised to make a difference in the country music sector and dedicated to make a difference in our lives.
