Southern Roots with Larkin Poe

I feel so blessed to have been born and raised in the foothills of North Carolina. A small town girl with big city dreams, I traveled and explored but realized that my true dreams were going to be made with my feet planted firmly in Southern soil. 
Music played a huge part in my childhood and Grayson and I are trying to give Tilley-Gray that same experience. While Grayson may blast beach music and Motown from his childhood, my upbringing leads more to a bluegrass, American roots sound. 
Southern Living magazine is one of my favorite sources for inspiration in interiors and entertaining, but last night I found a new favorite band, Larkin Poe. The Lovell sisters who named their duo after their great, great, great, great grandfather are soulful songwriters from Georgia. 
Larkin Poe joined Southern Living for a Biscuit & Jam session recently. 

Listening to them brings back memories of Sunday afternoons on my front porch listening to my father, grandfather, and his eight brothers playing bluegrass after Church.
 I may not be able to give Tilley-Gray that exact experience, but having music like Larkin Poe certainly makes the background music feel the same. 

Tilley-Gray is sweeter than ever and has been bouncing up and down to our new favorite band, Larkin Poe (white skinny jeans and all!) . 


  1. Tilley-Gray is so cute in those skinnies! My favorite music is bluegrass and I am always looking for new bands. Have you listened to Carolina Chocolate Drops new cd? They have a song called Country Girl that is great :)
