In Their Words: “As soon as Jeannie Seely started singing ‘Like I Could’ to me, I instantly loved it. It felt like it was written just for me and my vocal style. As we were recording the tracks, it just felt right. You know when you can feel that something is just right for you; like trying on that perfect dress, or pair of shoes. This song was just the right fit.
“The recording session was very impromptu. I had just finished recording a duet for Grand Ole Opry star Jeannie Seely’s new project. There was a cancellation of the afternoon session, and I quickly asked if I could book that time. I called musicians, and it was like it was destiny. The musicians and engineer were there with only an hour’s notice. I sent a message to ask Jeannie for the lyrics and demo. It was really amazing how everything came together.
“I feel that many people will relate to this song and its tremendous heartbreak and sadness. My hope is that there are people who hear this song, namely those in the midst of the devastation of a breakup, who will reconnect and renew their love with each other. It has a very desperate message, asking, ‘What happened, I thought you could see us together forever?’ Maybe this is the perfect song and question they need to hear to bring them back together.” — Rhonda Vincent
