Chris Smith (Carolina Bound) at One Stop in downtown Asheville

I was pleasantly surprised tonight, going in for dinner at One Stop in Asheville after work, to discover Chris Smith, whose music goes by the name Carolina Bound, performing. There are SO MANY singer-songwriters out there, but this one stands apart in the crowd with great writing and performance. He played this beautiful song that included lyrics about being young, about laughing like thunder and looking up at blue skies and it took me back to being eight years old lying on a hill below my house and watching the clouds go by and imagining that I could feel the earth turning. It took me back to a time before the world made me apprehensive, to a place I'm trying to return to (and he just may have helped me get there).
