Jared & The Mill Come Home After Playing Arenas With Barry Gibb

Michael Carter lives in a Southern-style storybook, on a piece of meticulously maintained property in the heart of Tempe, covered in lush bermuda grass, pecan and mulberry trees. This is a common meeting place for Jared & The Mill, and given their country-infused folk-pop sound, it's about as complementary a location for them as can be. It's mid-April and the band is just days away from leaving for a sold-out tour opening for Barry Gibb, their biggest break to date. Of all times, the band received confirmation of the tour on April Fools' Day, but there's nothing funny about the realizations the guys are having now.
