NEW Song

Carry On Cover Art


I’m releasing my very first single called “CARRY ON” Friday, March 20th! It’s actually the first song I wrote and what I played at the bluebird cafe’s open mic night in Nashville, Tennessee when I visited there the summer of 2018.

I had the opportunity to record it live at the famous Ryman Auditorium during the same visit as well. While it’s evolved since then, I’m incredibly thrilled to be singing the vocals on and co-producing this NEW recording of my very first song: CARRY ON.

CARRY ON is special to me because it’s a song that is inspired by the things my grandmother used to say to me. It includes lyrics based on her approach to life when things get tough, for instance she always used to say “Nice things take time.” While it’s a personal song to me, I believe it embodies a spirit of its own that a lot of people will relate to.

CARRY ON is a lighthearted acoustic song, and has an upbeat and hopeful feel with lyric about carrying on no matter what. It has a foot on the floor beat, with a bit of a twist, and is reminiscent of the dance barn band sound from the time early country got it’s roots. CARRY ON fits in the Folk Americana genre but it sounds fresh. If it were in a category of its own I’d call it “Fresh Folk.”

Two strange things happened while recording “Carry On” at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville

The stories behind the Carry On song lyrics:
She taught me how to spell Mississippi

Twirling my hair she’d say how pretty…She loved to talk

Keep your chin up honey, Not everyone’s gonna love you like me

Lay back, float

Nice things take time

Listen to its humble beginnings: “Carry On” Ryman Auditorium Recording

Thanks so much for taking the time to check it out,

Oh… and carry on! (wink)

  1. Annie! I just love your lyrics! It does take you back to a nostalgic, simpler time in life. Kudos to you! And look at you! Floating down a river in an inter tube. Awesome! What river is that? Sounds like another song, eh? Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks so much Deborah! I’m not sure what river it is but now I’m curious to ask my sisters who were floating next to me if they know. Thanks for your enthusiasm and support! Carry On!
