“Home In Carolina,” track one of “Josh Brannon Band,” sets the tone of the release touting the virtues of a life well lived in the Palmetto State, even invoking the state marketing slogan “Smiling Faces, Beautiful Places.” The song builds slowly, to an up tempo country-rock tune creating a musical landscape reminiscent of the state itself – mountains to the sea, not unlike Brannon’s own journey from the upstate to the beach. He repeats the first line of the chorus “Lord I’m home in Carolina,” with the conviction of someone deeply rooted. “…so baby if you’re thinking about leaving, you can go on by yourself.”
