Everything in life is always better with friends around …

“The premise for the song is that friends never let you leave,” Karen says. “You’ll meet one early on and next thing you know, it’s last call and you’re with the rest of your regulars. For the video, I surrounded myself with many of my friends to put the message forward that the ‘trouble’ with friends is that they are truly indispensable. In life, we need to live a little and enjoy the company of friends as much as we can.”

If you’re in for a dose of upbeat country vibes, you’re in the right place!

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.
