“I always told myself I’d get to Nashville,” Brooke White sings on the eponymous track off her upcoming album, Calico.

I was off being a romantic, sneaking out early to grab her coffee from her favorite café. Oh how she loved her coffee! Strong, black, and decaf. No one understood her taste for coffee—sans caffeine on top of it!
