This is funny to me because I also linked my "I Can't Make You Love Me" cover to Tony Lucca's Youtube video. And I met him last year at a gig at Room 5.
The best yet is that the first video I ever uploaded to Youtube is a cover of Kathleen Wilhoite's "Wish We Never Met." I got a message on Youtube that said, "I like your cover of my Mom's song." I wrote her back saying, "Are you telling me you are Kathleen Wilhoite's daughter?" She wrote back confirming she was, but honestly I didn't believe her. The next week Kathleen Wilhoite walks into the coffee shop where I work. After we properly met, I said, "I love your music." And she said, "Compliment received!" She also confirmed that her daughter had her watch the video of my cover of her song. Somehow I managed to not faint. Craziness! Small world!
So the moral of these stories is that I hope I continue to meet the songwriters of the Youtube video songs I've covered. Specifically Lori McKenna and Patty Griffin. :) My heart just started beating fast when I typed that. EEEEE!
I wrote a new song and performed it last night. It was loud.....on purpose. Here's to more songs bumbling out. G'night!
