Carolina Rose

Album: A Thousand Miles Left Behind (2012)
  • Gloriana's Tom Gossin wrote this song about his fiancée Jaime. He explained to Billboard magazine: "We dated for ten years, on and off. One of our big splits happened when I went on the road with Gloriana for the first time. We were living together in Wilmington, N.C., and I got the call saying, 'You guys are going to open for Taylor Swift. You start in a couple of days.' I asked, 'When will we be back so I know how much to pack?' And they said, 'We don't know.' Jaime and I went from being together everyday to never seeing each other, still trying to hold our relationship together, which would be hard for anybody. This song is our story."
  • The song is also about the changes that the Glorina trio has been through. Gossin explained to The Boot: "We've gone through being normal people and playing music and trying to 'make it,' so to speak, then we've had a couple years of making it. It's about looking back after that and realizing what's really important. It's not the spotlight, it's the relationships you had."
