Katelyn McCarter - Beyond Skin Deep

At the top of “Rough Day,” the upbeat lead-single from singer/songwriter Katelyn McCarter’s debut Dreamin’ Out Loud Entertainment album entitled, Beyond Skin Deep, she explains, “as we go through rough days in life but at the end of each day, we must seek God and come to him for support and guidance,” and with simple everyday life issues as: My Clock Is Running Slow/ The Coffee Pot Is Broke/Can’t Find My Keys, And Now My Head Is Achin’/My Rent Is Overdue/ My Boyfriend Said We’re Through…“Rough Day,” is indicative of a lyrically relatable and musically sound project.
