Technically, this is the first song I wrote and recorded for this CD. I didn’t know that’s what I was doing at the time…Originally my idea was to write an whole album’s worth of songs that had the titles of reality TV shows. Of course the songs would have nothing to do with the TV shows. I wrote this and that’s as far as I got. I sometimes feel I could write sad, country songs like this in my sleep…but perhaps not. This song really straddles the line of being a genuinely sad story of loss…and being corny. Hopefully it falls on the right side of that line. Shortly thereafter I got my first MacBook which of course came with Garage Band. I wanted to mess around with it and began recording this, which was my latest song. As part of the recording process I decided to teach myself how to play slide guitar. I tuned to open “G” and messed around for a day or two and then gave it a go. It came together quite quickly and then the song just sort of sat around for awhile. As I began recording in earnest the following year, I knew this would have to be included. The only thing I did was add the harmonies which had developed as Angela began playing this live. And then one day I sat with my acoustic guitar and came up with the slower, bluesy version of the song we currently do live. But with the addition of Brian on drums, we’ll revert back to this version live.
