Carolina Moon

Album: See You Tonight (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This Jon Randall and Ronnie Stewart written song finds Scotty singing lovingly of his home state. The North Carolina native wanted to record this Appalachian-tinged tune as soon as he heard the first verse and chorus. "It hits home with me, growing up in North Carolina," he said. "The song talks about being on the road touring and missing home."
  • Alison Krauss joins Scotty to offer harmonies on the traditional Country tune. He was honored that one of the best singers in any genre agreed to record the song with him. "That took the song over the top," he said. "She is wonderful and has such an iconic and beautiful voice."
