Carter Faith Finds Love Coming Back Around in “Leaving Tennessee”

"It’s like a moody daydream version of a love letter," she says

Listening to the lyrics of “Leaving Tennessee,” the new single by Carter Faith, is like tracing a road map of heartache. And all those roads lead to the drive-in theater at dusk, where there’s a hint of better days ahead.

A North Carolina native who studied songwriting at Belmont University in Nashville, Carter Faith is insisting in “Leaving Tennessee” that she’s actually doing the opposite — no more packing her bags and hitting the road. Both in confessional songwriting and vulnerable vocals, it’s easy to hear the musical influence of two of her favorite artists: Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift.
