“When I was nine years old, my mom bought me this record for my birthday – on a cassette – and it changed my life. Had I not heard this record and seen the movie Sweet Dreams, I might have become a totally different person than what I am today.
“I think I fell in love with country music because of this record. I remember the color of the cover, the dress she’s wearing – it just stays in my mind. The song Crazy could very well be my favorite song of all time. I know I'm not alone in saying that.
“A few years ago, I went to a record label showcase for a new artist. It was starting late, so I went to a bookstore to kill some time. In the music section was a CD copy of this album, so I bought it. I took it to my car and listened to it, and I got very emotional as it played. It took me right back to being a little girl and listening to it with my mom. It did everything to me that great music is supposed to.”
