The Mountains Are My Home
This song is my song about the mountains. My love of the mountains comes from my upbringing in North Carolina. I am originally from Greensboro, I spent my summers growing up in Brevard, and I lived in the Boone area for four years. This song was written on one of my many trips to the North Carolina mountains. Music has been a part of my life from an early age, I was born into a musical family so it isn't surprising that I became a guitar playing, singing songwriter. There is a long history of traditional music that has come from the mountains, I have been greatly influenced by and appreciate that tradition.
