RADIO HOST “THE VOICE OF THE NEW MUSIC GENERATION”
Today’s Featured Artists:
Kassidy Lynne – Carolina Water
Carolina Water was actually the 2nd song that I wrote and it wasn’t even planned on being my #1 song on the EP. We went into recording thinking “Bloom” would be the one – In the recording studio, we were all like “this is the one!” Carolina Water is a song that just gets stuck in your head. For it to be that amazing, I am excited to see what my future holds for me in country music as a singer/songwriter. Carolina Water is a sweet love story about a girl reminiscing about the past summer that she had with an amazing guy who tells her he loves her. They spend every night down by the water just hanging out and dreaming of the future. The girl wishes she could go back and do it all over again and never let it end. It is probably every girl’s dream summer.
Kassidy will be joining us for Behind The Music.
Cherelle Joy – Gravity
Gravity is a song I wrote one evening in my room as I sat at my keyboard. I had the lights out which helped set the mood for the writing of this song. It eventually became a very ambient song with the metaphorical idea of ‘Gravity’ representing that moment someone suddenly stops loving you, or when you finally come to the realisation that the person you love no longer feels the same about you anymore. A lot of my songs are written almost as if I am watching or scripting a movie. Since I have never really been in a relationship, I tend to try to imagine what it would be like to experience a specific kind of situation and in turn I try to recreate that specific emotion through my lyrics.
Cherelle will be joining us for Behind The Music.

While in Nashville, Depaolo came to him one night and said he had an idea for a song called “Whiskey Kisses.” They immediately wrote the song, recorded it a few days later at Destiny Nashville.
