Produced by Billy Sherrill

Released Septemeber 12, 1989

Billy Sherrill was legendary. George Jones was legend. I remember standing in front of the microphone for the first time. I had a bag of Lay’s Potato Chips on a stool next to me and I looked at my feet on the parquet floor. The room was all legends and wood around me. The players were the best in Nashville. Hards “PIG” Robbins was at the piano and Billy sat above me in the elevated control room. I felt lucky. I felt like I was where I was supposed to be. I was there, doing it. I was making records.

George and I sang a duet together called If I Could Bottle This Up and it was my first single out to the world. The song made it onto the country charts and I was off and running. Critically, SUNRISE was a success even though it garnered no big hits, but the attention I received because of the George duet and Billy producing, made the conversation worthy within the Industry. The world embraced me and looked forward to what I had to offer. I had no idea what was yet to come.
