Flush with an influx of cash because he wrote a song included on The Bodyguard soundtrack, Lowe started making records to satisfy his own wandering muse.

I get the chronology mixed up - I first heard Miller play with Emmylou Harris, and then I think this was the first record of his own that I heard.

These songs are stronger than they first appeared.
