Carolina Story

It’s rare you find a married music duo that adheres to none of the married-duo-cliches. Carolina Story writes and performs songs, knowing that there are enough love songs on earth. They evoke the blue collar man and woman, because that’s exactly who they are. From their genesis, they have crafted their sound to be a perfect mix of the lyrical grit and wit of Hank Williams Sr. and the tender atmosphere of Heart breaker-era Ryan Adams. Carolina Story (Ben and Emily Roberts) are from Arkansas and South Dakota respectively, meeting and falling in love in Memphis, Tennessee, setting up shop in East Nashville and making a name for them selves in every state in between. Since 2009, Carolina Story has been hard at work touring, writing and putting out music they believe in; each release astonishingly better than the last. Starting as starry-eyed newly-weds ready for the road ahead with their self-titled debut evolving into wise road-worn troubadours on their album, “Home”, with the ability to turn an insightful phrase at a moment’s notice. Carolina Story’s potential is in their numbers. They've played in excess of 650 shows in 43 states since 2009 and debuted “Home” at #2 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart in November of 2011.
