Caroline Herring (By Suzie)

Caroline Herring's website mentions the years when she "paused to focus on marriage and motherhood as she continued to tour and play festivals ..."
I just got to the point where I knew I had to write songs again. Music is my life-blood, even as the career of the singer/songwriter is most unusual, especially in the South, where the jobs of women are often mother first, wife second. There's a line in one of my songs about a woman who lives in a backroom and begins to disappear. I didn't want that to be me.
That line is from "Heartbreak Tonight" on her 2008 CD "Lantana." I'm sure some of you can identify with it.
