In Their Words: “I had the musical hook portion of this song for a while before we found the subject to start writing about. I played it one day for my son, Grayson. He said, ‘We’ve been studying the history of Charleston, South Carolina, in class. It used to be called Charlestown years ago. I think that’s what this melody says.’ It was like a light came on. That was exactly what it was supposed to be.” — Shawn Lane

“‘Charlestown’ is one of my personal favorites from our recent project. The song is loaded with visual imagery. Shawn’s exceptional vocals really bring it all to life. I’m honored to be a part of the magic.” — Richard Bennett
