There is one thing that we are sure of this coming September. If you head to Downtown Bowling Green for the Lost River Music Fest, you’re going to have a blast. We will over the next couple weeks do a rundown of the 13 bands performing. Today, Kalisa Ewing:
Kalisa grew up in the country just outside Nashville where, at age 11, she picked up a guitar and penned her first song. She credits her insatiable passion for music to her grandfather, who died of heart problems just after she was born. Kalisa’s grandfather, Owen McCarty, was a blind musician who moved to Nashville to fulfill his dreams as an artist in Music City. “One of my songs, ‘Redemption,’ is about everything that I’ve had to learn the hard way through the years. That’s the kind of real stories that I hope connect with people. I like to write about love, screwing things up, being a screw up, finding redemption and then living to tell about it. I write about what I’ve learned.” If there’s one thing Kalisa knows about life’s big surprises is that it will bring you to where you need to be when you least expect it. It will bring you home. And that’s exactly what her music is all about.
