As a songwriter, the first song I remember hearing where I really thought about the lyrics was “Who I Am” Jessica Andrews! I was about twelve and remember hearing “I am Rosemary’s granddaughter, spitting image of my father, and when the day is done my Momma’s still my biggest fan”! At the time I was trying to decide who I wanted to be so it became my life song!
