‘It was a good thing I didn’t get a deal on that first trip to Nashville. I realized that there were so many people who wanted to do exactly what I wanted to do and I had to figure out a way to make myself different. ..When I write a song..
I’m the only person who is feeling it and I’m singing it to the person I’m writing the song about, it’s very personal. But when I put it on an album and I see girls my age singing the words back at me, I’m not alone any more.’
