Handwritten lyrics to Carolina Rolling By song read: "Carolina Rolling By, the window's down and the sun's up high. Can you feel it? I can feel it. Sometimes I watch the trees, and I wonder at the leaves. All reaching toward the light. They can sleep at night. They know to do what's right. When I'm out at dawn on an open road, And the sun climbs up the branches, I know I'm not alone. It's just the long way home."Carolina alumni (from left) Wood Robinson, Joseph Terrell, Libby Rodenbough and Jacob Sharp of the band Mipso have been captivating audiences with their sweet harmonies for over a decade. The band is currently on tour promoting its sixth album, Book of Fools. Terrell shared with Carolina Arts & Sciences the handwritten lyrics to “Carolina Rolling By,” the first track released, and it’s a song that Tar Heels will likely be singing on repeat.

The Bluegrass Situation, which recently tapped Mipso as its “Artist of the Month,” wrote, “There is a kinetic energy in this collaboration that is only achieved from years of hard-won work and the evolution of four people who choose each other.”
