“I wanted ‘Country Home’ to have a smooth melody and be fun to sing to, no matter what age you are. I know many of my fans live somewhere similar to Madison County where I come from and I want them to remember experiences like this. For those from the city, I want them to know what they’re missing
and to get out and experience a little back-creek living. Country Home guitar riffs, drums, and bass are hard hitting, making you want to move to the beats and rhythms.” – Toni Clare
Do You Realize
“Do You Realize” is an upbeat country love song about a girl with a crush who just can’t get up the nerve to talk to a guy. I wanted this first song of mine to be catchy and one that everybody can sing and dance along to. I also wanted to experiment right off the bat with different sounds and techniques, thus the “radio voice” toward the later part of the song. The lead guitar and harmonies also add sweetness to the song, but the breaks and rhythm define a groovy style.” – Toni Clare
