'Kansas", the new single from singer/songwriter Karen Mosier Nicholson, is a rockin' country tribute to her home state. Written and recorded with True North members Brad Henecke, Bob Francella, Sean Eaman and Jake Shimon, this song is road-tested and approved, becoming a fast favorite of audiences. Nicholson recalls the inspiration for the song: "I remember the day well. I was visiting my folks in Kansas when my friend, David, called. He and his brother had just made a long trek from Colorado to Virginia and had the pleasure of traveling through the fabulous wheat state via 1-70. I knew I was in for an earful; Coloradans love to bemoan trips past the golden wheat fields, rolling hills, and gorgeous sunsets as 'long and boring'. Some of us know better, though." "The trip would be a lot more fun," he joked, "if there were billboards every few miles with your sisters on them". "Yes," I said, "and the caption could say 'Not Everything's Flat in Kansas'!." It was inevitable that this thought, this idea, would become a song. With the assistance of my sisters, Kristen, Karla and Kayleen, this one did. We all submitted our dearest memories of growing up in Kansas, and they are woven throughout the lyrics of this song." 'Kansas' is Nicholson's sophomore release, following the album "Don't Look". Nicholson spent the last three years writing and touring with True North Rocks. Now a resident of Colorado, Nicholson was raised in Kansas and is a graduate of Kansas State University.
