RECORDS Nashville singer-songwriter and artist Chris Bandi is releasing a brand new song “Carolina Blue” tomorrow, March 11. Written by Bandi with Matt Willis and Jason Massey, the nostalgic melody will be available on all platforms here.
“‘Carolina Blue’ was one of the first writes we did on zoom after the world shut down,” Bandi shares. “There are very few things in life that can take you back to a certain place or a certain time. It could be a song that takes you back to 18 with your best friends or a white Jeep that reminds you of an ex. This song is about seeing that certain shade of blue that always brings back the memory of a flame that was extinguished too soon.”
Produced by Ash Bowers and Bandi, the track follows the recent release of “Probably At A Bar” and follows the touching musical tribute to his late grandfather, “the tearful of 2021″ (Taste of Country/The Boot), ” Would Have Loved Her.”
