Life In the Carolina's Podcast

Apr 8, 2022

On this episode of the Life in the Carolinas podcast, Carl sits down with returning guest Nikki Morgan, singer-songwriter, to catch up on developments in her life and career since their last conversation. She speaks on the common threads between gospel and country music and the path that she is currently on in discovering exactly how these two genres influence each other. She focuses on the element of faith present in most country songs, as well as the down-to-Earth everyman nature of the genre as a whole.

Carl asks Nikki whether she intends to foray into country, and she replies that, lately, she has been writing songs that “ride the line between country and gospel very nicely.” She adds that singing these songs has been a joy, saying that “I’ve finally found a voice that I can settle in.”

Finally, Nikki performs a song she wrote in 2019, I’m Going Home, which she demonstrates as being an example of her journey to settling into the intersection between gospel and country.
