The influence of Angela Easterling's hometown, Greer, South Carolina, can be seen in her second album, "BlackTop Road". Easterling comments that although most people leave, they always end up coming back there. That is why she can always call it home. Her strong connection to her hometown and the experiences that she had there give her songs a very personal and emotional touch. Easterling talks more about her songwriting in an interview that can be found here: countrystandardtime.com/d/column.asp?xid=327.
