Lyrics and story behind "Carolina Time" written by Emily Frances and Dan Evans of MidWest Coast
It was our second trip to North Carolina, sitting on the back porch after a day of exploring the Nantahala Outdoors Center, local breweries, Mountain Layers captured our hearts (and taste buds), we strummed and hummed out came "Carolina Time".
The lyrics tell the story to a 'T'. We found it, we fell in love, we made new friends, we didn't want to leave, we left, we realized it was a state of mind that made us so happy.
You often hear about songs that were written in 20 minutes, this was not quite that situation. Carolina Time was born in the mountains. The idea of Carolina Time is that you can put the song on and drift away to the mountains! We want everyone to experience Carolina Time because it really IS a state of mind. (It's a great focus for meditation happy place to go to!) We won't ever turn down a Carolina Adventure!
