What is the Your Story Project?
I've always believed that everyone has a story that could inspire a song. So, in April 2011 I launched the 'Your Story' Project to invite fans to send me their stories to inspire a song for my album, "Stories Behind Songs."
After reading countelss stories from fans throughout the U.S., I selected a real life love story inspired by Louis Sillay, a new friend from Alpharetta, Georgia. According to Lou, he and his wife Laura Lee (pictured right in the church they met in) have been 'sweethearts' for 65 years and married for 61 years.
And, during the writing process, I turned on the video camera. Watch how the song came to life:
Part One- Finding the Title
Part Two- Decisions, Decisions
Part Three- Coming Together
