This CD comes back to basics—just guitars, mandolin, voices and a little percussion. The songs are mostly of songs encouragement and look into life (and death). Based on true stories, a song, ‘The Mailbox at Bird Island”‘, is written about a letter found in a mailbox on Bird Island, a deserted island on the borders of North and South Carolina. It is from a hurt, forlorn lover who asks his girl to marry him. “Amy’s Journey” is a song thanking those who participate in the Turtle Watch program and help protect turtles such as Amy in her journey. Some songs are whimsical in nature, but all heartfelt. Produced by Bett Padgett.
