Hey everyone! How are you all doing?
I'm super excited about today. Why, you may ask?
You may have three guesses:
1. I met Hunter Hayes
2. I got a record deal
3. I found a piece of Godiva chocolate as big as my house
Unfortunately, this is a trick question—NONE of those are correct...which sucks, because that would make just the best day ever, especially that third one.
No, I wrote two songs today. That may not sound like much, but believe me, with the writer's block I've been fearing, it's awesome. I wrote a duet (one that I want to do with someone, not one I'd send in to Thompson Square, like "I Wanted You." This is exciting because I get to choose who I'd want to do the duet with...heh heh...still got my fingers crossed for Hunter :D) and another song! Woo!
The name of the duet is "I Loved You." Stupid, right? Hopefully, it isn't as stupid as it sounds...I think...
Ahem...er...anyway, I had an idea for a chorus in the other song, "Waiting for You," a few months ago, and I had no clue where I'd go from there. I got super excited—usually, I don't force myself to write songs. I always say that the best ones come out of nowhere. But Mom and I were in the car, waiting for Megan to come out of her Driver's Ed class, and I had a notebook and pen, and I wanted to write while I had no school. So I forced myself to write the rest of the duet.
It isn't as bad as I usually imagine forced songs to be, and as for the other, it just kind of came to me. I had an idea for a line in "I Loved You" that I wanted to write down. Yay!
I always said that if a song idea is truly good, it'll stick with me. Usually it does. Although sometimes it doesn't...and it comes back hours later. Gotta love that...
Now, before I go, have any of you heard of the Amish Brothers? They make AWESOME covers of country songs (like Eric Church's "Springsteen" and Luke Bryan's "Drunk on You") and are fantastic musicians. Check 'em out on YouTube and follow them on Twitter—and I think they have a Facebook page, but I don't have a Facebook, so I'm clueless in that department. XD
Bye, everyone! Thanks for reading! <3
