Dedicated to Jennifer Nettles. Lead singer of Sugarland & Solo Artist.
You’re welcome. It was a fluke really that I found it. I had visited that site before but never really explored it until last night. Surprise, that demo was there! Glad everyone is enjoying it!
Jennifer Nettles, “Know You Wanna Know” (Nettles, Marx)
“We were set up by Sara Bareilles, who said, ‘You two not only need to write together; you need to know each other.’ She knew that Jennifer and I were gonna get along. We wrote four songs over two days at her house in Nashville. ‘Know You Wanna Know’ is my least favorite of the four, but she absolutely loved it. She kept saying, ‘This is the song I need for this album.’ The tempo of that album is mid-tempo to slow, so she really needed a barn-burner. [‘Know You Wanna Know’] is basically a ditty. I just started playing some blues on the acoustic guitar, and the melody started to shape. She jumped into it and said, ‘You know, this song should be about gossip, about people talking too much.’ And then it was really fun, because we were writing about a very specific topic. Writing with Jennifer is a blast because everything she sings sounds like a hit record. She’s just got an insane voice. The work tapes of us writing songs that week at her house are filled with record-quality vocals. Even before the vocals were finished, everything she sang was stellar.”
