Country music singer-songwriter Paige King Johnson has released the lyric video for her latest single “Homes in the Hometowns,” which connects her passions for both the farming and music industry. The thoughtfully-crafted lyric video highlights all facets of North Carolina agriculture, showcasing the true beauty of the southeast state. The message of the “lifelong legacy” which farmers have made on each small town is emphasized in the video through picturesque landscapes, bountiful produce, cherished livestock, and more. A star on the rise, Johnson never forgets her North Carolina roots, thankful for those who wake up before the sun rises to provide for the community. The “Homes in the Hometowns” lyric video was premiered by Sounds Like Nashville and the single is available to download and stream on all digital platforms now!
“While working on this lyric video, it was important to me that all aspects of North Carolina agriculture were represented,” shares Johnson. “It’s impossible to touch every area of agriculture and agribusiness in North Carolina in just 3.5 minutes, but I really do feel that we did a good job of showing the variety of products and businesses we have within our state. I’m so proud of this video as the first visual representation of a song that means so much to me and my Got to Be NC family! I hope it means just as much to the hard-working people we’re representing in it.”
Johnson recently announced her partnership with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services as their Musical Ambassador for their “Got to Be NC Campaign.” The partnership shines a light on how both agriculture and music have the power to serve communities and touch lives. Johnson is excited for this project not only to make a difference in her home state but to inspire the world around her!
About Paige King Johnson:
Born in a quiet North Carolina town just 22 miles south of Raleigh, as a young 9-year-old girl, Paige King Johnson spent her summers under the crepe myrtles imitating the styles of Loretta, Patsy, Waylon, and Merle. Having a grandpa as her biggest fan also meant receiving the gift of her first guitar – a baby Taylor – and enrolling in lessons. After her grandpa passed, the bright-eyed dreamer carried on his memory by taking her newfound discovery to local fairs, festivals, and any other stage she was allowed to stand on. As she grew older, Johnson added “opening act” to her resume, supporting chart-topping artists like Scotty McCreery, Neal McCoy, Luke Pell, and James Otto. And with high school graduation came the realization that this was more than a hobby. The Angier native traded in horse pastures and back roads for the bright lights of Music City in 2015. Upon starting school at Belmont University for Music Business, Johnson honed in on the magic that had heavily influenced her as a child: the art of storytelling through songwriting.
The famous Bluebird Café was just one of many writers’ circuits around Nashville that provided a safe space for Johnson to meet other writers, try out new tunes, and get feedback. In return, Johnson began captivating audiences with her down-home stage presence, cut straight to the bone stories and raw country voice, reminiscent of the classic country era. In the last four years, Johnson has traveled back and forth between Nashville and the Carolinas, playing shows like the North Carolina State Fair and running her dinner theater, Country on the Outskirts of Town, that she founded in high school. Johnson’s quarterly show provides an atmosphere for locals to enjoy Southern cooking, fellowship with friends, and the sounds of classic and current country music with some gospel thrown in. A three-time Carolina Country Music Awards Winner for Female Vocalist of the Year, Country Emerging New Artist, and Tour of the Year, Johnson’s devoted homegrown fan base continues to expand farther than just her backyard.
