We have an inspirational song from Canadian country/roots artist Francine Honey. “I Carry On” featuring Robert Gray is a song that will leave you feeling hopeful.
“I Carry On” was cowritten with her neighbour, friend, and fellow songwriter Robert Gray.
It’s a song about the human spirit and our ability to overcome all kinds of challenges. It features the familiar sound from Francine Honey that we have come to expect and love, and Robert’s voice which blends wonderfully with hers.
When you listen to the lyrics of this song, you will find that you can relate to many of the sentiments in the song. Including asking yourself “Where does this courage come from?” when you get through a challenging situation.
“I have had my share of challenges in life struggling to make ends meet as the sole provider for my two children and somehow I always knew I’d get through them,” Honey explains. “Robert and I were outside chatting one day as neighbours do and he told me he was going through a major health challenge with cancer.”
“We bonded over our mutual feelings about overcoming challenges with the help of a positive attitude, gratitude, love and song writing!” Honey Continues, “We talked about how others have inspired us in the past, and wrote about how people are there for you when you need them and the strength that we as humans find to survive and overcome our challenges.”
These two make great writing partners!
This song is more than just a great message though. It’s also a great melody. It’s a song that you’re going to want to add to your playlists and enjoy over and over again.

In country music, the Front Porch has long been a place of reflection. A place where you can look at the life you have inside that front door. A place where time almost seems to stand still, where you can get away. It’s also a place where you can go to observe the world as it passes by you. To think about your place out there beyond the driveway.
