Music Monday- Trisha Yearwood

So Friday night I joined my roommate and we attend a writer's round here in Nashville. We went to see Greg Barnhill who is her officemate (and also hooked us up with our Voodoo Fest tickets). Now, I knew he had had some pretty big cuts and was pretty successful. I think at one time I had found out some songs he had written and was pretty awestruck. So he is is on his second song and he starts talking about how this song had been on hold for Wynonona and then she ended up not recording it. Trisha ended up picking it up and felt like it was such a pivotal point in his career because the song was really more adult contemporary then Country at the time. I get jaded sometimes about my work, the music/entertainment industry, and Nashville. But all it takes to love everything about this place is one really good songwriting round. And I got it on Friday.
