Charlie Worsham Was in the Dumps When He Wrote “Could It Be”

“We didn’t have anything going on,” Charlie said about him and the co-writer. “We were kind of depressed.”

Newcomer Charlie Worsham just oozes romantic hope in his breakout single, “Could It Be,” from his debut album, Rubberband, which just came out.

Wow, Charlie must’ve been on the edge of something incredible with one of his lady friends when he wrote that, right?

Wrong.

“You know, the crazy thing is, when we wrote the song, I wasn’t exactly in that situation,” he tells ABC News Radio.

Charlie wrote the song with producer Ryan Tyndell, and neither one was having much luck in the romance department.

“We were both just in the dumps, man. We didn’t have anything going on. We were kind of depressed,” Charlie said.

“I think we wrote—’Could It Be’ is such a hopeful song—I think we wrote it out of a desperate need to have something hopeful going on.”
