Question: Do you have a favorite or most meaningful song from your own works?
Answer: Every song I’ve written and recorded has a special meaning but there are a few that stick out. Of course “What If I Said” since that made so many dreams come true for me and really jump-started my career. When I was writing that song, I could hear Steve Wariner’s voice singing it with me. When the president of Warner Bros. Records heard the song, he asked me who I wanted as my duet partner. I told him Steve Wariner. He made a call to him, and the next thing I knew I was standing next to Steve singing my song in the studio. First time ever meeting him and within minutes I felt like I knew him my whole life. I’m a very sentimental person, so I’m a huge fan of ballads. Some other favorites that I have written are “One Of Those Days,” “What I Leave Behind” and “Picture You In Heaven.” I think songwriting is truly a gift from above and sometimes you get a little extra sparkle on songs that can bring healing.
