Country singer Carrie Zaruba chatted via telephone on May 16 with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos about her new EP “Woman on a Mission” and she disclosed her exclusive news about her plans for the future.
On the song selection process of her new EP, she stated, “I spent a lot of time writing and crafting the songs on the album, whether it was an acoustic writer’s night or with my band. For about eight months, I performed twelve to fifteen songs, and based on crowd reactions, I narrowed it down the ones that they loved the most. It was a long-time trial and error process.”
Carrie noted that her song “Raining Pennies” is a melancholic tune. “I wrote it at a time when I felt that accomplishing my dreams felt so distant. I love that song,” she shared.
She subsequently added that she wrote “Belly of the Beast” about a person that she knew that suffered from a lot of addiction. “I wrote that song about him. I know a lot of people that have personally dealt with addiction and unfortunately, it’s such a common occurrence these days. A lot of people can identify with the lyrics of the song and it’s great that people are recognizing it,” she said.
Her EP closes with the song “Andalusia.” “That was my attempt to write a song that wasn’t about me and after I wrote it, I realized that it may be about a part of my personality that I haven’t fleshed out. It’s actually a breed of horse and it’s such a beautiful name. The girl in the song runs, so it was really fitting for her,” Carrie said.
Regarding her plans for the future, Carrie remarked, “For the first time since I have been to Nashville, I have been officially chosen to perform during the CMA Music Fest at the Chevy Acoustic Stage on June 7. The show will begin at 12:30 p.m. I am beyond thrilled for this opportunity. This is really exciting and I hope to make new friends and fans.”
Carrie complimented Country Music Hall of Famer Emmylou Harris and praised the veteran songstress for her music and humanitarian work. “Emmylou has been such a huge influence on me growing up. She is so gracious and she is such a legend and she is beautiful. I just love her natural gray hair and she does so much great charity work for pets and animals,” she said.
