Carolina Story’s ‘Lonely Without You’ is your Folk Alliance International Song of the Day

The International Folk Alliance Conference & Winter Music Camp comes to KC February 19-23. To get you geared up for the folk blowout, every day we’re posting a song we like by one of the event’s showcase artists.

Blissfully wedded life partners Ben Roberts and Emily Olson Roberts are the powerhouse duo behind Nashville’s Carolina Story. Together, they make charming, twilight-on-the-ranch-sounding Americana. No one really knows where the Carolina “story” comes in – Ben is from Arkansas, and Emily is from South Dakota, and the two met and now live in Tennessee – but when they sing so prettily, who’s gonna ask questions?
