“Speaking of Georgia” is a preview of Porter’s new musical chapter as she prepares to release an upcoming new project, titled Grown.
Peytan Porter delivers a gentle nod to an old flame and salutes her roots at the same time with her brand-new tender acoustic ballad “Speaking of Georgia.” The rising country artist and Dawsonville, Georgia native is giving readers of Music Mayhem the first listen of her hometown anthem in this exclusive premiere.
“Speaking of Georgia” will resonate with listeners everywhere as it rekindles the relationship a person has with the place where they were born and raised. In the track, Porter is a constant traveler making her way from the West Coast to the East Coast and jetting off to Nashville, Tenn. Through her journey, she finds herself lonely and longing to get back to where she came from.
A true home is where the heart is mid-tempo ballad, but the fast-rising singer/songwriter couples the message of wanting to return to her roots with the nostalgic memories of a former love interest as she recalls her first love in the second verse, singing the words: “They’re swearing two states ain’t too far / Nothing breaks a teenage heart / Like leaving your first love.”
