Thread Name: Origins: My Carolina Home (McMichen, Layne, Stokes
Subject: RE: Origins: 'Carolina Home'
Hey Guys, Here's the deal......... When I got ready to record "Carolina Moon", Charles Gidney, Luke Smather's great nephew, sugested I add the "Carolina Home" part as the "verse" to the chorus of "Carolina Moon." I think he even brought me the sheet music. Anyway, it seemed like the right thing to do. It fit nicely and hearaled both Luke and people he heard on the radio in the 1920's-30's. by the way, Charles was the lead guitar player in Luke's band for mnay years, and on the June Appal records they made.
