Q: Can you explain your song writing process?
A: That's a lengthy answer, but I'll try to give you the short version! Usually an idea hits me when I experience something, or hear something that really sparks that inspiration in me. Many writers write their lyrics first, then their music / melody, or the music first then the lyrics, but it has always come together at the same time for me. I usually start out by putting a melody to the one line I started with, then I build from there. I use rhyming dictionaries sometimes, and that helps spark a "matching line" or sometimes just gives me an idea when I'm stumped. I write with my laptop sometimes, but I actually prefer to do most of my writing with old-fashioned pen and paper. I actually do my best writing when I'm driving / on the road, which partially explains why I have done very little writing in the past 2 years (coming off the road to have a baby...) When I'm driving, I use a voice recorder and just record the ideas until I get to where I can put them on paper. A lot of writers in Nashville co-write, and I enjoy doing that but most of my writing is just me. :) Out of 27 songs on 3 albums, only 2 songs are co-writes. I hope to do a lot more collaborating here when life slows down a little more for me! (When will that be?!? ;)
