Songs Leslie Wrote


"When I came to town," she recalls, "it was on a Saturday, and on Sunday morning I went to church and kind of fell in with the whole Judds bunch; they all went to that same church. Don Potter, who had been working with The Judds, befriended me and became interested in my songs. I remember sitting in the studio one day crying, and I said, 'I don't want to be a songwriter.' Don asked me why, and I said, 'because if I'm a songwriter, they won't let me be an artist.' He said, 'Girl, first of all, who is 'they?' And and second of all, two words for you: Paul Overstreet.' At the time, Paul was a big artist as well as a songwriter."

"When I realized that I had a gift but I didn't have the craftsmanship for songwriting yet," she recalls, "I started going out to the Bluebird Cafe and places like that to listen to great writers. When I wandered in and heard Larry Cordle and Carl Jackson and Jim Rushing and Jerry Salley in the round one night, I felt like I'd been hit by a Peterbilt truck. From then on, I went every time I could hear them. Then, I started asking them to write with me one by one, and they were all busy and didn't want to write with some kid they didn't know or whatever."

"Larry called me out of the blue one day and said, 'I'm Larry Cordle, and I've heard a couple of songs that you wrote, and I wonder if you want to get together.' And we've been fast friends ever since. Since then, I've gone on to write with all those guys, and I love them dearly, but if it hadn't have been for Larry, I'm not sure what would have become of me."
