This song was written as a Christmas present last year for my friend. It was my dad’s idea, and since I’m the family composer, I wrote the music and my sister helped with the lyrics. The song is about the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, based upon our experiences there last fall.
We recorded this version as a trio with guitar accompaniment, although someday I hope to be able to produce a more elaborate arrangement. It was lots of fun putting it together, and perhaps it will lead to more musical projects in the near future.
I hope you enjoy the song, and if you don’t mind, please post a comment to tell us what you think about it!
