REBECCA LYNN HOWARD ENDS UP ON TRISHA'S ALBUM
Rebecca Lynn Howard may be a newcomer to the country scene, but her single "Forgive" is climbing up the charts, and she is the co-writer of Trisha Yearwood's latest single, "I Don't Paint Myself Into Corners."
Originally, Rebecca had written the song intending it to be sung by Patty Loveless.
"Nobody knows Patty Loveless songs better than I do, so I just knew I could write a song for her," she says.
However, her plan never materialized and the song didn't make it onto Patty's album.
One day while at the record company office, Rebecca ran into Trisha Yearwood who asked, "Do you mind if I record 'I Don't Paint Myself Into Corners'?"
Says Rebecca: "I almost went into cardiac arrest. I said, 'Are you kidding me? Do I mind? What kind of question is that? You've got the best set of vocal cords in this town. You can sing anything I've got. You don't even have to ask.' "
And the rest, as they say, is history.
