MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — One of Laurinburg’s favorite sons, Jim Quick, is doing what he can to help those who are recovering from Hurricane Florence and the devastation it left behind earlier this month.
Quick and Jason Jackson recently penned the lyrics to “Carolina Shine,” an original song performed by Quick as part of a video that features numerous news clips from across the state during Florence’s five-day swamping of southeastern North Carolina.
That song is now being promoted for downloading at a cost of $5 per download — and all of the proceeds will benefit the Hurricane Florence Relief, and will be distributed by TRs Cancer Fighters.
The song’s lyrics talk about the approaching storm, the devastation it caused and the recovery efforts by Carolinians. Some of the lyrics include: “The rain just came and came” … “Carolina, oh Carolina, is gonna give way and you’ll be fine; Carolina, oh Carolina, watch her, Carolina shine; Carolina, oh Carolina, come together and watch her shine.”

Quick and his Coastline band will be performing at the following dates and places over the next several days: Thursday in Bennettsville; Friday in Rocky Mount, N.C.; Saturday at a private event in Elon, N.C.; Sunday in North Myrtle Beach; and the next five days in Key West, Fla.
