Story behind the song
I met a 15 year old female singer/songwriter writer from Adrian MI through a Detroit News add....her name was Amanda; nickname "Dallas." Said her relative was Tanya Tucker. She sent me several letters and a picture. So, I decided to help her with her career. Got her in a studio to record, gave her a ton of industry tips, and connections. I had compassion for her because she did sing a bit flat, but she was energetic an optimistic, wanted to be a "star". She was advised to get vocal coaching. She snubbed me, and went nuts over the cute studio owner I referred her to telling me " I don't need you anymore." Good story anyways.
