Weather the Storm


The members of Carolina Rain hail from scattered points of the South—Tennessee, Virginia and South Carolina—and their music likewise covers a lot of territory, offering an open-armed mix of country and bluegrass. What holds it all together are the effortlessly effervescent harmonies of lead singer Rhean Boyer, guitar- and banjo-playing baritone Marvin Evatt and mandolinist tenor Jeremy Baxter. These 12 mostly selfpenned tunes—including the Top 40 hit “Get Outta My Way”—offer little in the way of lyrical profundity, but the trio’s audible joy in singing together keeps the weather clear.
