The tune chronicles a pivotal moment in Scott’s life. He writes:
“A few years ago I found myself in a pretty bad situation. Estranged from my wife and kid, living on my friends floor, as far from sober as I could be, watching and letting my entire life fall to pieces. It was a pretty dark period. I took a long hard look in the mirror and realized I had 2 choices.. get your act together..or just give up. I chose to get my act together and took every step necessary to do so. No pity parties. Man Up. That’s what I did.
A couple years later I was in the house I grew up in visiting my folks with my wife and kids. I started reflecting on a lot of stuff. Thinking about how life would be different if I hadn’t made that choice. I have a lot of friends I miss dearly ’cause they made a different one.
This song just started pouring out. I brought it to the band..and we wrote Carry On.”
“Carry On” is taken from Scott Sorry’s forthcoming album “When We Were Kings”.
